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.

(CS1131) A Nice example of an issued and awarded Iron Cross 1st Class for 1939. The cross comes with its original award Case and shows moderate wear and tear. There is no damage to the swastika or core. The frame in my opinion, has had a knock at the 6 0 clock righthand side on the corner, as there is a crack along the joint now. The frame most of its black finish, with the silver frame oxidising black in places. This would all probably clean if so wished, but as it has a nice overall look, I personally, would leave it alone. To the reverse, a third of the way down the pin at the widest poin, you have the No 65 stamped into it, for the well known firm of Klein and Quenzer. The hinge, pin and hook all work perfectly. The cross comes in its original domed award case that has an off-white silk under lid which is light beige flocked base cloth. To the underside of this, when lifted out, there is the well known impressed D & B mark, with the number 2957 stamped in. The box as stated, is the domed type, with a good working hinge and hook, which snaps shut when closed, holding the box nice and tight. The hinge and press stud are magnetic, and you have the outline of the cross in silver embossed to the lid. A very nice example to find. Priced for cracking. GBP 299.00 (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)

(MC245) A Nice example of a 1939 Iron Cross 1st Class. The cross is of standard three piece magnetic construction and has a nice pin fixing to the reverse. The cross is an unmarked example, so dates from before 1941. Overall, in very good condition. GBP 195.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC766) An Iron Cross 1st Class in used and worn condition. The cross is maker marked L/11 to the base just under the hook. The hinge and hook are in working condition and the cross is nicely soldered around the edges, with encompassing a black magnetic core that retains much of its original pain, although this has worn, mostly on the swastika and dates. In very nice condition. Given for acts of bravery, above and beyond the call of duty. 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)
