IRON CROSSES 1939 1st Class
Awarded for several act of bravery, this award went on to capture the German nation as well as the rest of the world to become probobly the most widley reconized award in the world.

(CS1566) An Iron Cross 1st Class being the type manufactured by the maker No 26. and marked as such.The cross comes in its award case , which has held this cross for many years. The cross is virtually in mint condition, with the frame oxidising and tarnishing, but nothing serious. The black iron centre retains virtually all of its original finish. The pin has the maker's number 26 halfway down stamped into the reverse. The case the cross comes in, has a lid emblem and has a cut out to take the cross, which from the impression the cross has made, has been sitting in it for years. This cross actually sits slightly askew in this, but that is how it has come. The case's white base is nice and clean, as is the underside silk lid. The case is opened by a round press stud, which is not often associated with this maker, and you have a steel hinge to the reverse. It is my belief that this cross is one of the Russian railway hoard from the late 1990's as the cross appears never to have been used, worn or issued as the box shows minimal wear. The cross even less. GBP 395.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC829) A Screwback Iron Cross 1st Class being an unmarked example but put down to the Wiedmann firm. The cross is of standard three piece construction with a nice iron centre. Someone has removed most of the paint from the dates and from the edges of the arm of the swastika. The cross is nicely soldered and finished and has a little anti-rotation device fitted to the top arm of the cross. Nice overall condition complete with its screwback fixing. Quite a scarce cross to acquire. GBP 275.00 (UK Pounds)

(S898) An Iron Cross 1st Class in used but nice condition. The cross is slightly convexed but there is no splitting or cracking to the frame or core. The iron core shows wear and tear and the swastika, which is often the case, has had the paint removed from all of it, to give contrast. Although the cross is unmarked, it appears to be a Klein and Quenzer example. The award has a nice usable pin, hinge and hook and is ideal for any display. GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1160) A Cased Iron Cross 1st Class by Jeweller. This example has been used in the reference book The Iron Cross of 1939 on page 121 where just the outer card case was used due to the fact the cross is an unmarked example and stating as such, it would be an unknown maker. The card case is nice and complete though age stained, which contains a very nice flat cased iron cross. The case is in virtually mint condition and has a round press stud that is similar in design to the B H Mayer type. There is no wear and tear and has an emblem embossed to the lid. Inside the case, there is an off-white silk lid and a mouse flocked base with cut-outs to hold the iron cross. The iron cross 1st class is in virtually mint condition and has oxidised on the silver frame to an almost petrol blue colour. Very nice condition, this was one of two of these makers that were picked up at the same time in their card cases. GBP 900.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1492) A Mini Prizen Iron Cross 1st class for 1939 by the famous Berlin maker C. E. JUNCKER and stamped L/12 to the centre of the cross. The cross has the same frame attributes as it's larger sized counterpart and the cross is of superb quality and condition. It is one of only 3 that I know of. A very rare item to acquire Not often seen and far rarer than a Knights Cross of the Iron Cross. GBP 999.00 (UK Pounds)

(S632) A Nice example of a Replacement 1957 Iron Cross 1st Class having the standard West German pin fitting with a solid blocked hinge and hook soldered to the reverse. The cross is magnetic and there is the earlier 1st pattern style of oakleaves to the centre. All in all, a nice example. That comes with it original 1957 Award case. The case is used and worn and is in good condition GBP 150.00 (UK Pounds)
