(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)
