1914 Grand Cross of the Iron Cross

Description

An extremely rare 1914 Grand Cross of the Iron Cross. 

Correct three-part construction. The frame is made from real silver and comes with a lovely patina. No silver hallmark, how it must be. Full original black paint to the iron core (magnetic). It is made very fine and detailed. You can see the "shadows" on the black paint between the cross arms, collectors call it "the core sweats". Including the original loop.

Weight including loop: 61.3 gr.

Size without suspension ring: 63.32x63.17 mm.

The thickness of the frame: 5.88 mm.

One of the very rare opportunities to purchase an original 1914 Grand Cross of the Iron Cross. 

In addition, a matching neck ribbon (postwar). Length: 44 cm.
