Miniature 'Deutsches Kreuz in Gold'


Miniature 'Deutsches Kreuz in Gold' (German Cross in Gold). The German Cross was introduced by Adolf Hitler on 28 September 1941 in two classes, Gold and Silver. The gold class cross was awarded to military personnel for exceptional acts of bravery or achievement in combat, the Silver class was awarded for distinguished acts of service in the war effort. The German Cross was to be worn on the lower right breast of the service tunic or field blouse. This is a multi-piece construction, 16mm sized, example which is nicely maker marked with 'L/57' indicating production by the company of 'Börger & Co.' in Berlin. The miniature is in very good condition without any enamel damage, the miniature still retains almost all of its original finish. Desirable original miniature!
