BARS TO THE IRON CROSSES 1ST CLASS

(CS944) A 1st Class Bar to the 1914 Iron Cross. This is the type manufactured by the well know firm of Deumer and has their usual needle pin, hinge and hook fitment to the back. The badge is of early tombak silver plated quality. The badge has been polished but this isn't too serious. The bar is a nice textbook example for these and it has been priced for condition. GBP 375.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC830) A Bar to the Iron Cross for 1939. This is the type that has the heart shaped chest and a nice pin, hinge and hook fitting soldered to the reverse. So far, these awards have not been identified to any specific maker, though the firm of Deumer has been mentioned. The award is in nice overall condition and is silver plated onto a base metal. GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)

BARS TO THE IRON CROSSES 2nd CLASS

(CS945) An Early Issue Bar to the Iron Cross 2nd Class in red case of purchase . The bar is manufactured from tombak metal and then silver plated. There are some minor tarnish marks, as can be seen from the scan. The bar is complete with all four pins, but has no ribbon to it. Of nice quality striking. It could possibly be attached to a ribbon if so desired, but I would personally leave it alone as you are never sure if the prongs may snap, which would then de-value it. also it looks good in the case though the more people pull it out the weaker the red card base becomes. So i would leave it sa it is. GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)


(MC821) A Packeted Bar to the Iron Cross 2nd Class. The bar is in very nice near mint condition and is marked L/11 just to the base of the swastika on the reverse. The bar is of superb quality and construction and has all four pins intact. It comes complete with an original piece of WWI ribbon and is then in its paper packet of issue that is marked to the reverse WILM DEUMER LUDENSCHEID. To the front, SPANGE FUR EISENERNESKREUZ II. KLASSE. There is also an ink rectangle with three lines to the packet just below this. Why that is there, I have no idea. Scarce to find. GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)

1957 BARS TO THE IRON CROSSES

(P81) A 1957 Iron Cross 1st Class and Bar Combination being issued to a German soldier who won the iron cross in WWI and then subsequently was awarded it in WWII. He then went on to continue his service in Post War Germany in 1957. Few would have qualified in the new West German army to wear this award. If we say the solidier was 16 in 1914, he would have been 59 or so in 1957. As you can see, this is a rare occurance. The award has an iron centre for the iron cross and then has a bar affixed by solder to the top, while it is encompassed in the silver frame. The only real downside to the quality is the appalling paint job they have given this award. A WWII example costs in the region of 3000 +. These are much rarer, but do not command such a high price yet. GBP 300.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC650) A Nice example of a 1957 Bar to the Iron Cross 2nd Class as re-issued to WWI veterans who have also qualified for the award in WWII. As this was instituted in 1957, and the qualifier had to have been in WWI, if we take his age then as being 18 when WWI finished, when he qualified for the re-issue award in 1957, he would have been 57 years old and to be re-activated in the military at that age, he would have had to have been a high ranking officer and as such, few of these would have been manufactured re-issued and awarded. GBP 95.00 (UK Pounds)
