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.
(MC643) An Iron Cross 1st Class being the rounded 3 type. This example has the usual Early type hinge, and pin but the hook has been period repaired and it appears the original pin has been strengthened also. The cross retains much of its original blackened finish to the ironed centre and the silver frame is nicely soldered around the edge. Scarce to find. A nice variation at a reasonable price. Price taken into account for repairs. GBP £450.00 (UK Pounds)
(MC664) A 1957 Iron Cross 1st Class being the official replacement type manufactured for veterans to wear post 1957 who served in the West German army. The cross is of three piece construction with a non-magnetic core. The cross retains all its black painted finish and dates I feel, from the late 1960's to the early 1970's period. Becoming hard to find, these crosses were issued less than their wartime counterparts. GBP £125.00 (UK Pounds)
