Excellent Iron Cross made by Carl Dillenius. "CD" maker marked as well as "800" silver stamped. Magnetic iron core. Original black paint. Three part construction. Lovely patina.
With a fine original black case of issue. Silvered Iron Cross to the top. Minor signs of use. The Iron Cross does not fit exactly into the case. However a very nice set.
Good condition 2+.
King Frederick William III of Prussia initially created the Iron Cross as a military decoration on March 17, 1813, during the Napoleonic Wars. The Iron Cross was also awarded during the Franco-Prussian War (1870), World War I (1914), and World War II (1939).
The Iron Cross was usually a military decoration only but awarded to civilians for performing military functions in a few instances.
