| (CS1001) A straight armed Iron Cross 2nd class in very good condition. . The cross is unusual in the fact that the arms are straight like the original design and this style is shown in the book "The Iron Cross 1939". The cross is also what several collectors call, a rattler, which means the iron centre moves within the core of the silver edging. There is some minor paint wear and bubling to the cross but nothing too serious. Very scarce to find. GBP £395.00 (UK Pounds) |
| (S51) A Nice example of the Oversized Iron Cross 2nd Class. This is in overall very nice condition although there is a tarnish spot to the right hand arm of the cross at the 3 o clock position where something has been leaning against it. The cross is of standard three piece magnetic construction and has a nice soldering to the frame, with the core retaining virtually all of the paint. The frame has tarnished over the years. The cross originally came with a packet and full length piece of ribbon. The blue paper packet is split and torn and is maker marked Frank & Reif and had a sticker stuck to the back stating it was an oversized iron cross, by a collector at some time, but this has now been removed, leaving the obvious mark. Very nice to acquire, these were designated the knight's Cross in one of the publications at the start of the war, but this was superceded pretty quickly by what we now see. Priced for condition. GBP £750.00 (UK Pounds) |
| (S230) A Nice Standard Early issued Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939. The cross is the type where the core gently rattles in the two piece soldered silver frame. The magnetic core retains a high percentage of its original paintwork, with only a few minor chips with the most predominant on the swastika. The cross is the rounded cornered type and is in very nice condition. Given for acts of bravery above and beyond the call of duty. GBP £95.00 (UK Pounds) |
| (MC377) A privately purchased Cased Iron Cross 2nd Class 1939. The case is the LDO 2 piece hard card case with LDO to the lid,. The inside has a cut out for the cross in the base, lined in a peach coloured cloth to the base, whereas the underside is plain. To the underside of the base, it's stamped EKII & L/54. The cross that's in the case is in near mint and unmarked. It is of standard construction, with a nice magnetic core and a frosted and burnished frame with no splits or cracks. Comes with a piece of nice clean ribbon also. GBP £ 350.00 (UK Pounds) |
| (MC642) A Nice example of a Rounded 3 Iron Cross 2nd Class. The cross is the type that some people ascribe to the Deschler firm but I am not so sure, personally. The cross is a nice chunky example and is quite heavy. The cross is of nice magnetic three piece quality and construction and has only minor wear and tear. GBP £400.00 (UK Pounds) |
For Germany: The Otto Skorzeny Memoirs (BOOK)
Otto Skorzeny only rose to the rank of Colonel in the SS, yet is one of the best known and colorful figures of the Third Reich, in large part because of the faith Hitler had in the tall Austrian engineer. Many books have been written about his career, to include autobiographies, but before he died in 1975 he personally entrusted Bender Publishing with the formidable task of producing the most detailed, up-dated and best illustrated version of his incredible life story. A quarter of a century later, after painstaking research into the text and a hunt for unpublished illustrations, the ultimate story of Scarface Skorzeny, the most dangerous man in Europe and Hitler's commando extraordinary is finally available. Complete with an exhaustive index, providing biographical details not found in the text, this is likely to be the last word on this larger than life personality, one of the great characters of World War II. Overseas clients please note: Due to excessively high wrapped weight shipping is weighted on this title.
