Third Reich Medals offer
A German Replacement LDO Early set of Oak leaves to the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross


(S824) A Set of Oak Leaves to the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross with provenance to an Otto Weiss, an Oberst in the Luftwaffe. The oakleaves come with a postcard photograph of the said Oberst, which is signed by him and dated 1943 The oak Leaves also have again a tag with Otto Weiss signature and date of his award of the knights cross and his oakleaves attached to the oakleaves. It should be noted that Otto Weiss, Died of natural causes on 19 August 1955. And as such this tag was fitted before his death . Dating these before this date, The tag over the years has come of the leaves but are with them giving them superb provanance. There is a history of him and the oakleaves with this grouping signed by Christopher Ailsby. These oakleaves have been shown in a number of books, both by Mr Ailsby and others. The oakleaves themselves are unusual in the fact that they are 800 silver marked and L/19 marked.( I feel that these oak leaves were made by Steinhauer and Luck and then sold on as both this company and Deumer are known to have made and retailed Knights Crosses and Oakleaves.). The oakleaves are of nice quality and condition and are not the normal Godet pattern. It must be stated that although they have the provenance with them, they are not an official award set. Just a replacement set used by this pilot. (In photos he appears to be wearing a hand made set which may account for this set being bought) Still rare and nice and more affordable than the original issue. In used and worn condition, this set could tell a thing or two .. GBP 5250.00 (UK POUNDS)
