(CS1160) A Cased Iron Cross 1st Class by A 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)
(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)
(T7) A 1st Class Iron Cross for 1939. The cross is a nice Early example being called the Schinkle style. The cross is ascribed to the manufacture of Schickel. The cross is nicely convexed and has a nice working, hinge pin and hook fitting soldered to the reverse. The cross appears to be a one piece steel samped example that has been bronze and silver plated and then black painted. The cross reacts very stronly to a magnet and has been machine convexed. A very nice rare example, probably one of the first to be issued in WWII. Scarce to find. GBP £700.00 (UK Pounds)
