A Nice example of a Cased German Knight's Cross for 1939

(CS1467) A Nice example of a Cased German Knight's Cross for 1939. The cross is of standard three piece construction with an iron centre encompassed by a silver core. The core is the type ascribed to the manufacturer L/15, as is the frame, with the unique eyering configuration. This type of cross was only issued for a few years until the company went into receivership. The cross retains much of its frosted and burnished finish and black paint to the centre. The frame on this example is unmarked, though the medal loop appears to have an unreadable stamp to it. This type of cross is well documented and is attributed to the firm of Otto Schickel and is textbook in every way. The case the cross comes in is the rounded corner type with a nice silk flocked top and black base to take the cross. The case has suffered some water damage and as is often the case with this type, the hinge has loosened and has come apart. It could be glued back if so required, but I would leave that to the next owner. The cross comes complete with its original ribbon that is in unmounted and near mint condition. I feel this cross may well have been a privately purchased and stored away example, although these crosses were issued and awarded. GBP 9,500.00 (UK Pounds)
