THE GERMAN CROSS (DK) 1941- 1957 IN METAL AND CLOTH FORM

(S96) A Luftwaffe German Cross in Gold being the Cloth version. The cross has a nice gilt wreath being the only metal component to the centre, with a swastika in the centre of this and then flanked by red cotton, silver wire and a star effect. This cross has not been used or worn and apart from some minor oxidisation, the cross is in Near Mint condition. Used and worn by luftwaffe servicemen in the tight confines of aircraft, the cloth version was a very popular alternative to the bulky metal badge. This version has the fault to the 9 and appears to be a Deschler wreath. GBP 595.00 (UK Pounds)

(S95) A Nice example of a Near Mint German Cross in Cloth in Gold, for the Army. The cross consists really of a breast star with the cross referring to the swastika. The cross has not been mounted or worn and is complete with its original paper backing to the reverse. The gilded wreath has the fault at the top part of the 9. All the threads are relatively bright and clean for its condition. Becoming exceedingly hard to find. These crosses were worn on the combat tunic by many soldiers who didn't like to wear their metal counterpart. This was an easier wearing option, given the metal ones are very chunky. Also, the metal ones had a habit of being worn in confined spaces, the swastika could be chipped or dinged, and the badge could be caught on the pocket, which was not a good look, hence the popularity of these. GBP 600.00 (UK Pounds)
