WAR MERIT CROSS 1st CLASS
Instituted 1939 & Known Makers
No 1,No 3, No 14 No 52,No L/11 No L/21 No 98 No L/56

(CS1415) A Nice Standard War Merit Cross 1st Class With Swords, of mid to late war construction, by the well known maker No. 3. The hinge and hook are soldered to the reverse and are of better quality metal than the actual cross, which is silvered zinc. The cross itself has lost a lot of its silvering but is still a nice example. Priced according to condition and construction GBP 110.00 (UK Pounds)

(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)

(T238) A late war example of a War Merit Cross 1st Class With Swords. The cross is marked 65 to the pin and has a cast in hinge and hook. The silver wash to the zinc is retained in places, whereas in others, it is just a dark grey, so the badge could do with a mild clean. The award was given for acts of bravery, not in the face of the enemy, and as such, is a non combatant iron cross. Nice to find and reasonably priced. GBP 99.00 (UK Pounds)
