Nice unmarked and near mint, the bar was removed from a Deumer sample board and is in very nice condition. GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)

BARS TO THE IRON CROSSES 2nd CLASS


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)
