WW2 Iron Cross 1st Class 'Schickle'


Iron Cross first class (Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse) that comes on its original screw-back disc (Schraubscheibe). On 1 September 1939 Hitler reinstituted the Iron Cross (First time in 1813). The first class medal was for award to personnel who performed three to five acts of bravery in combat, and had already been awarded the Iron Cross second class. The cross has a three piece construction.The cross is not visible maker marked but can very likely be attributed to production by the company of 'Otto Schickle' from Pforzheim. The cross comes on its original and naturally functional two-piece screw-back set-up (Schraubscheibe). The cross is in good used condition. A great looking and hard to find cross!
