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)

(CS1298) A Superb Example of a Deumer manufactured Bar to the Iron Cross. The bar is a nicely Early silver plated type and has a nice hinge, pin and hook soldered to the reverse. Nice unmarked and near mint, the bar was removed from a Deumer sample board and is in very nice condition. GBP 375.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1671) A Nice Bar to the Iron Cross 1st Class for 1939 being the style ascribed to the firm of Steinhaur und Luck, as these often turn up on boards from this manufacturer. The badge is of nice quality and construction, though now aged. The award was sold by Bonhams on the 21st June 2005 and was part of the Island Farm Prisoner of War Camp Archive. It appears to have been removed from one of the POWs housed there. These were all of General Officer Grades Ranks. The Award has toned, or oxidised black in places to the reverse, whereas the front has remained constant Silver . The Award could do with a slight clean but is nothing untoward. A nice scarce example with a nice provanance. Originally sold by us in 2007 GBP 375.00 (UK Pounds)

(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)

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 as it is. GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)


(T42) A Rare example of a 1st form Iron Cross 2nd class bar with the scolloped ends. The bar has been removed from a tunic and still retains it 4 ribbon fixing pins. This is a nice early type in very good condition. GBP 425.00 (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)
