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.
(CS536) A Near Mint Example of an Iron Cross 1st Class in its Near Mint Case and bashed up Outer Card Cover. The card cover is split but has protected the case very well. The card case is marked Rufolf Souval Wein 62/VII. It also has the award's designation printed to it. When the box is closed up, it still protects the case. The case is a nice domed type being the D and B marked example. This is to be found under the flocked base. This has some minor staining or impression marks to the underside of the lid and flocking base. The cross itself is a nice toned example and has the features associated with the firm of Souval. The cross has no splitting or cracking to it and is unmarked. A nice set to acquire with its scarce card box and they are not turning up too often any more. A nice veteran bring back item. GBP £600.00 (UK Pounds)
(CS659) A Rare example of a Cased Iron Cross 1st Class with a Card Case Outer. To start with, the cross is an unmarked example of standard three piece construction, which is nicely soldered up along the edge with no splitting or cracking. The iron core retains virtually all of its paint finish, and as such, the cross is virtually mint. This is housed in a flat topped box with a silver impressed iron cross outline to the lid. The box is the round cornered type and has no major wear and tear to it, other than the base, where it has a few scuff marks. This is contained in the card outer casing, which has the name of the award to the outside, as well as the date and the name of the manufacturer being the jeweller Robert Koch of Frankfurt Und Main. This manufacturer I have only ever had three of his outer card cases The first one I have, can be found in the book " The Iron Cross" by Gordon Williamson on page 121. Very nice cross to find. GBP £850.00 (UK Pounds)
(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)
(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)
