A Nice example of a Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross

(MC318) A Nice example of a Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross. The cross is a Steinhauer and Luck "800" silver marked example. The medal loop on this example is unmarked. The cross has a nice magnetic centre with a nice high swastika. The frame has the tiny dots to the righthand arm but no webbing or loss of definition to the frame as can be seen from the scan. The cross also has the little flaw on the eyering on the righthand side on the reverse. The cross was originally sold by Regimentals in 2007 for 4750.00 and comes with their receipt. The cross also comes with a document from Dr. Kleitmann which shows the front and back of the cross, dated for 1981, where he states that this cross is a contemporary original and that the holder was awarded the knights Cross in 1943. And that he obtained this cross for his collection of samples in 1946. The cross is of standard manufacture and comes complete with a length of ribbon that has had the ends sewn over but the tabs have been removed. The ribbon is approximately 23 inches long. Scarce to find. The cross probably dates from the 1943/45 period when it would have been sent to the family as the holders original would have been destroyed with him when his tank burnt out. Unusual to get one with such an amazing history and provenance. SORRY I WAS SOLD IN 2016 GBP 5500.00 (UK Pounds)
