(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)

(T50) A Cased Early War Merit Cross 1st Class With Swords. The cross is in nice overall condition with silver polished highlights and oxidised silver lowlights. This has tarnished over the years. The cross is maker marked L/11 for Deumer to the centre of the cross's reverse. The hinge and hook are separately applied. The cross could do with a mild clean. This is an Early tombak example that has toned. The case is a nice example with the silver image of the cross embossed to the lid and is slightly domed. There is minor handling wear to the cross, but nothing too bad. To the underside of the lid, there is a white silk base and a black flocked base with cut out to take the cross. This has faded with the outline of the cross showing when lifted out, but nothing serious. The case is stamped D & B with the usual numbering etc. With this is a copy of an advert for the firm Deumer A nice item to acquire. GBP 275.00 (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)

(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)
