(MC711) A War Merit Cross 1st Class With Swords being a maker marked No. 3 example with silver plating over base zinc. This has oxidised giving the cross a two toned appearance. This type of cross was often given for acts of bravery, not in the face of the enemy, who carried out things like tank recovery etc. This type is often found on the Deumer medal boards and I believe this is where it came from. GBP 150.00 (UK Pounds)

(N612) A Nice Early manufactured 1957 War Merit Cross 1st Class With Swords. The cross is nicely frosted and burnished and appears to have used original components in its manufacture. The cross was given to 3rd reich veterans who again served their country in the new federal republic army of Germany as they were entitled to wear modified 3rd reich decorations.

GBP 75.00 (UK Pounds)

(S328) A Nice example of a 1957 War Merit Cross 1st Class With Swords. This is the Early plated type and is a good solid striking. The cross has burnished and polished highlights although it has toned over the years. Becoming hard to find. GBP 65.00 (UK Pounds)
