BRAVERY AWARDS
(S366) A Very Nice example of a Rarely encountered German Cross in Silver in a replacement case . The cross has been used and worn and shows minor wear and tear, as can be seen from the scan. The cross also has a slightly loose swastika as is often the case, with these lighter made examples. The cross is a standard No. 20, which is stamped into the underside of the pin and you have a countersunk hinge and hook and four doughnut rivets on a coupal star, with a nice blackened star overlaid with the red enamel border and silver wreath encompassing the black and silver swastika. The swastika has no enamel damage, though there is some tarnishing as stated. The cross come isn a replacement case, that are often paced of as real. The case has a silver line around the lid . Opened by a press stud, it has a white silk lid and black card base to take the cross. A superb and rarely encountered item .

IRON CROSSES

(S950) A superb example of a Cased Bar to Iron Cross 1st Class. The bar is a textbook example of the BH Mayer and the bar retains virtually all of it's frosted and burnished finish These bars are becoming increasingly hard to find nowadays especially in this condition. The case for the award is in very nice condition also, with the lid having a silver blocked design of the bar to it. To the underside of the black base there is the no "260" stamped into the base The case also has the square catch push stud and has very little wear to it. The inside is as to be expected lined in white silk, with a black base with a cut out for the award. Both are in superb quality and condition. Very hard to find now, GBP 700.00 (UK Pounds)



(S991) A Part Case for an LDO Iron Cross 2nd Class with the Cross inside it. The case has been pulled apart for want of a better description, with the base being removed from the card outer base. The top being moved also and one of the side portions missing. It sounds worse than it looks. The cross itself is a nice standard iron cross in very good condition with an unusual dated 1939 style. The bottom loops of the 9, the 3 and the other 9 have been stamped flat. The cross retains a high percentage of its original blacking and the silver frame, though tarnished, is nice and clean, with no dings, scratches etc. There is no maker's mark that I can see. In very good condition. Priced for condition GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)



CIVIL LONG SERVICE AWARDS (Faithful Service Crosses etc)
(T358) A Scarce example of a Cased 4 Year Man's RAD Service Medal. The award is a nice Early lightweight type suspended from its original blue ribbon and has a pin fixing sewn to it. The card case is similar to the faithful service cross case being compartmented in two to separate the medal from the ribbon. This is in a fawn brown colour and also has this over the lid to the underside. The outside of the case has a number 4 in silver within a cogwheel and the case is a vacuum sealed case. There is minor wear and tear, which is to be expected, but nothing too bad. Scarce to find. GBP 385.00 (UK Pounds)



(S186) A German Red Cross Neck Decoration. The cross is the pre-nazi type with the Deutsches Rot Kreuz in black enamel around a white central disc with a red cross to it.

The cross measures approximately 50 mm wide and comes complete with a piece of ribbon that is about 55 mm wide. The award is also contained in a red case with the title of the award under the lid. The case is a post war piece, and has protected the cross and displays it nicely. Very scarce award, these were also issued after the end of WWII, until the new style was used.

Two of the flaps on the sides are broken, whereas the underbox is perfectly fine. The medal is a nice coupal example and it is maker marked to the ribbon ring, 21. The medal is the slim type which is to be expected and would be of early war manufacture.

To the front, there is the award's name and class printed and to the reverse, there is the maker of Wilm Deumer Ludenscheid. The cross is in very good condition, although there is some cracking to the white enamel of the bottom arm, as can be seen from the scan. Very very minor though. The cross has a nice burnished silver finish and appears to have been used and worn by the mother. The cross is complete with its original ribbon. The cross is the 16th Dezember 1938 Adolf Hitler type. All in all, a nice example. GBP 90.00 (UK Pounds)



RUSSIAN FRONT AND OSTVOLK AWARDS
(CS353) A Cased example of a Mussert Cross for 1941. The cross was issued albeit unofficially, to members of the Dutch SS for bravery and service on the Russian Front by Anton Mussert. Hitler forbade this award stating that the Dutch volunteers were entitled to German awards etc and so the award was withdrawn, but only on an official level. The award is of enamel and multi-construction and comes with its original ribbon and pin attachment. In the case, there is also the official Ribbon Bar. The case is of tw-piece construction that has had the top ends split on the corners and repaired with sticky tape which is removing the purple leatherette finish. The case should have been hinged but this has broken. The case shows wear and tear but still nice to get an original and has certainly done its job protecting the award. These crosses are becoming increasingly hard to find with more interest shown now with collectors researching foreign volunteers on the Russian Front. This has caused prices to rise steadily over the last few years. SORRY I AM SOLD 5.2.2022



WAR and QUALIFICATION BADGES and MEDALS
MORE PICTURE & INFO
(T661) A General Assault Badge by the maker RS in its Paper Packet of Issue.

The badge is the type with the rounded R and S below the hinge. The hinge is mounted in the unique place of the shoulders of the badge. There is a nice retaining hook. The badge is of mid war quality and construction. A scarce variation to find, even more so with the paper packet. GBP 275.00 (UK Pounds)



WEST WALL MEDALS
(T275) A Late German War West Wall Medal in its Paper Packet of Issue. The nice bronzed plated zinc medal has the eye ring cast in to the construction of the badge. The bronze plating is bubbling, only mildly as can be seen from the scan. As such, this was probably one of the first of the last West Wall issue to be given, as it is unusual to find such a nice quality late war award. The paper packet is the standard example, manufactured by Karl Poellath and is in near mint condition, so it is believed the whole award was never issued, just stored away. GBP 45.00 (UK Pounds)



MORE PICTURE & INFO
