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.
(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)
(CS1241) A Nice example of a used and worn Iron Cross 1st Class for 1939 by the maker L/50. This can be found under the hook. The hinge, pin and hook are all in working order. The cross is slightly convexed. The cross is nicely soldered up and there is no splitting or cracking to the core. The black core retains about 80% of its finish, as can be seen from the scan. A nice used and worn cross. GBP £225.00 (UK Pounds)
(R115) An Iron Cross 1st Class for 1939. The cross is of nice quality and construction and came in with the U-boat grouping to Helmut Weinhold. The cross is of magnetic construction with a silver frame encompassing the iron core. The whole thing has toned, but the cross is of nice quality and construction. The cross retains virtually all of its black painted finish and has oxidised a dark colour. The cross is unmarked, but probably dates from around 1942/45 manufacture. The cross comes in a late war Iron Cross case with the emblem to the lid. This late war classic case has a paper hinge and is the vacum seal type. As is normal the paper hinge has split but the silk hinge cover is still intact holding the two parts together. Over all the case is nice and clean and its nice to find this late war type of case. GBP £325.00 (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 style of oakleaves to the centre. All in all, a nice example. GBP £125.00 (UK Pounds)
