The case that the award comes in, is the type associated with the Mayer firm, with the rectangle press stud, full lid design of the bar, though this has worn, as can be seen and to the inside you have a silk lid and a black base. This shows wear and tear and water damage. This all sounds worse than it is, so please look at the scan for details. But its priced taking this all in account. GBP £750.00 (UK Pounds)

This example is nicely soldered around the edge and is hand finished. The black centre is nice with only minor wear and tear. The loop on this example is of nice quality with burnished ends and is marked 935. The overall quality and construction is very good. The cross comes complete with a nice piece of original ribbon. The cross is a superb example and priced for its unknown pedigree. The cross comes complete with a 1957 issue RK box, that addes to its effect and protects the cross. Worthy of further research.

(MEDAL-CASES) Over the years we have had many collectors and dealers ask if we can supply replacement boxes and award cases for their medals. Also, others have asked what the best method of storage is for their investment. We have been approached by several suppliers of replacement cases, unfortunately, we have found the cases to be either of poor quality or priced far too highly, or both. However, one of the worlds leading suppliers of Third Reich Replacement Orders, medals and badge cases makers has recently got in touch with us and has offered to supply us with their products. We have found these examples to be of good quality and affordable. These cases offer real value for money, as not only do they protect your investment, but also show off the award to its best and the cases highly replicate the original award cases. This makes for a cracking display, they are good for storage and movement into the bargain. With some original cases costing several hundreds of pounds this means adding a case can be affordable, as well as practical. For more details please click on the image on the left
