1939 Knight's Cross with Swords in case - S&L

Description

Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross made by Steinhauer & Lück. So-called "B-type" with a non-magnetic core. Three-part construction. The frame "800" silver stamped. Produced from 1945.

Including the matching ribbon. Most probably made after 1945 but it does not glow under UV (black) light. Length: 45 cm.

Furthermore, a very nice example of Oak Leaves and Swords to the Knight's Cross. 1957 type. Please note: between the swords and the oak leaves is a small distance in the center, as with the original pieces ("open swords").

With the original case of issue. 1957 type. Button and hinge are magnetic. It opens and closes correctly.

A nice set in good condition.
