BRAVERY AWARDS

(CS691) A nice near mint Cased German Cross in gold. The Cross is contained in the proper latter style of case without the gold border around the top or press stud.. The cross is the second style Zimmermann type and is maker marked 20 under the pin. It is the lightweight type and the swastika has no enamel damage. The central disc is age stained but the crosses blackened star and silver outer star are again near mint . The red enamel border isstill intact with no chipping or scratching and the wreath still retains a high proportion of it's frosted and burnished finish. . The silver backing star is the coupal style and has both the hinge and hook countersunk into the backing plate. There are 4 nicely domed hollow rivets holding the whole construction together. These are nice and tight and the over all condition of the star is near mint . The case has a couple of scuff marks to it with one showing through to the card underbase, but nothing too bad. The black base has the usual wear where the 8 points of the star have rubbed. Other than this, the case is very nice. GBP 2995.00 (UK Pounds)

IRON CROSSES

(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)

(MC377) A privately purchased Cased Iron Cross 2nd Class 1939. The case is the LDO 2 piece hard card case with LDO to the lid,. The inside has a cut out for the cross in the base, lined in a peach coloured cloth to the base, whereas the underside is plain. To the underside of the base, it's stamped EKII & L/54. The cross that's in the case is in near mint and unmarked. It is of standard construction, with a nice magnetic core and a frosted and burnished frame with no splits or cracks. Comes with a piece of nice clean ribbon also. GBP 350.00 (UK Pounds)

CIVIL LONG SERVICE AWARDS (Faithful Service Crosses)

(MC627) A Very Nice and Rare to find example of a Cased 4 Year RAD Service Medal. To start, the medal is in near mint condition and is the Early lightweight type. The medal is mounted on its blue ribbon and has a fixing pin to the top. The ribbon is nice and clean and is of good quality sewing up, mounted for wear. The award comes in its two piece brown card case, similar to the red faithful service crosses, this one has a number 4 within a silver cogwheel embossed to the lid. The case is nice and clean. These are not often encountered these days. This one is in beautiful condition too. GBP 185.00 (UK Pounds)

It also comes complete with it's full length blue ribbon. This again is in near mint condition. The case has been split and is missing the front top edges. The hinge is also split. Other than this, the case is in ok condition and is quite hard to find. The lid of the award has the SS runes embossed to them in white. Very unusual to find. The medal was amongst many items that were picked up by a British Soldier who was a camp guard and was stationed at an SS barracks. He acquired many items by swapping, trading and purloining at the end of the war or which this is one of them GBP 1000.00 (UK Pounds)

The cross comes with its original ribbon which has an embroidered police eagle to it in yellow. It is the nice wide style of ribbon. The case is a green two piece card example that is vacuum sealed. The inside of the case has a light brown flocking paper fitted and is compartmented for the ribbon and the cross. The case is in very good condition and has done a job protecting the cross, which is also in very good condition other than the gilt flaking.
GBP 225.00 (UK Pounds)

Scarce to find especially with this packet, which is also LDO marked. GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)

(R271) A Superb Bronze Infantry Assault Badge in its Paper Packet of Issue. The badge is a textbook JFS example with a silver pin and a countersunk hinge and hook.

The badge retains virtually all of its original bronzed finish with only marginal wear and tear.The badge comes with its original paper packet of issue which is also in near mint condition. The badge still has its original tissue wrappings. I believe the badge was one of those found approximately 5 years ago, still in their packets. A superb example not often encountered, especially such a complete set in lovely condition that won't disappoint. GBP 350.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS683) A mid war example of a Pilot's Badge. The badge is the standard BSW type with the usual flaw to the swastika. The badge shows some zinc plate bubbling to the reverse but nothing too serious. The badge is held to the zinc silver plated wreath by two fine domed rivets. The front of the award shows a nice blued eagle holding a silvered swastika on an oxidised silver wreath giving a very nice over all finish. Complete with it's nice pin and hinge fixing, the badge would grade as very good condition. The badge comes in the remains of its original card box of issue. The box is in fragile condition but still complete and has the awards designation printed in black ink to the front. Very rare combination to find. There is no makers mark to the box. GBP 650.00 (UK Pounds)

(N915) A mid to late war Close Combat Clasp in Bronze in it's frail cardboard box of issue. The card case was originally a one piece construction, but this has split and been repaired.

The clasp is a mid to late war standard 1st pattern FLL clasp, with a separately soldered hinge and hook and magnetic back plate. The clasp, although it shows no wear, has faded giving a two toned bronze and silver finish. Very scarce to find, in case. GBP 695.00 (UK Pounds)

(R438) A Navy Blockade Runner's Badge with it's Miniature in near mint condition. The badge is a nice gun metal and silver plated example, being the type with the secondary dished centre to the reverse. This is commonly called the 2nd Pattern in some reference books. The badge has a nice silvered eagle holding a polished swastika on the prow of a cruise liner type vessel. This is breaking the chains or British blockade in its symbolic form. The badge is manufactured by the premier maker Schwerin and is marked as such to the reverse, along with the designer's name which reads as follows;- FEC. OTTO PLACZEK BERLIN, second line, AUSF SCHWERIN BERLIN. The badge also has its small Miniature being the 9mm size, which is again in very nice condition. The pair are contained in the original presentation box that has a cut out for the badge and a piece of cloth to hold the pin. The Case is blue lined paper with a paper hinge that is unfortunately split, as is often the case. The hinge protector is holding it all together. Very scarce to find in this condition, a superb textbook example of this award in Case of Issue with Miniature. GBP 725.00 (UK Pounds)

(R440) A cased Observer's Badge by the well known manufacturer Assmann. This textbook example is of their usual late war high quality that shows an eagle holding a polished swastika on a late war zinc wreath. The eagle is silver oxidised and retains a high percentage of this blackened oxidised finish. The silver wreath though, has dropped much of its silver finish, giving the badge the same overall colour, as can be seen from the scan, apart from the swastika, which still shows it burnished finish, giving a marked attractive contrast to the badge. To the reverse, the badge has a standard Assmann clip, affixed to a circular base plate, soldered to the wreath and a nice block hinge and good quality pin soldered to the top. The badge has a nice pair of flattened rivets holding the eagle to the wreath and the A mark stamped to the reverse of the back of the eagle. Very nice quality to find. The case for the award is a mid to late war example lined in blue paper with a split blue paper hinge, the case has the cut out for the pin and when lifted out you can see "626K.B" embossed to the back of the blue cut out base . The lid has in silver the wording "Beobachterabz" embosed into the lid. The box is opened by a push stud which is magnetic and it also has a magnetic hing. In nice condition the pair GBP 850.00 (UK Pounds)

CASED & PACKETTED WOUND AWARDS

(CS1044) A late war Cased Gold Wound Badge. The case is the vacuum seal type with the paper hinge and silk covering.
