  • IRON CROSS – 1914 – 1st CLASS – THREE PIECE SCREWBACK

    SKU: 09-736

    $495.00

    IRON CROSS – 1914 – 1st CLASS – THREE PIECE SCREWBACK This is a very slightly vaulted 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class three-piece screwback. The obverse’s paint rates at about 85%. As we examine the reverse, we see a repair where the screw post attaches to the Iron Cross. Extensive soldering is evident. A round backing plate measures 1 1/4″ in diameter. The locking nut features a small handle. It bears the legend “Deutscher Offizier Verien,” along with an .800 silver hallmarking. It is good-quality screwback that is a bit “saltier” than we often offer. It remains an appealing example, in any case, and is attractively priced.

  • IRON CROSS – 1914 – 1st CLASS – THREE PIECE SCREWBACK

    SKU: 09-325

    $375.00

    IRON CROSS – 1914 – 1st CLASS THREE PIECE SCREWBACK This is a rather interesting variation of the three-piece screwback of the Iron Cross 1st Class. The cross is low-vaulted. The paint on the obverse, while virtually complete (with the exception of the high point of the “W” in the center), has an unusual toning. Often, in Iron Crosses from 1813 and 1870, we will see a crinkling effect on the paint due to the age. This Iron Cross has the same effect. We do not often see this on 1914 Iron Crosses. In another 20 to 30 years this may be more common, but right now we just do not see it. This makes for an unusual “look.” If you want an Iron Cross that is a little salty, this one will be fine for you. The Iron Cross has a great patina on the obverse and reverse. It is not hallmarked for manufacturer or silver content. This is a very affordable screwback Iron Cross.

  • IRON CROSS – 1914 – 1st CLASS – THREE-PIECE SCREWBACK

    SKU: 09-711

    $495.00

    This is a most interesting 1914 three-piece screwback Iron Cross 1st Class. Its unusual aspect is that the cross is a flat (non vaulted) example similar to the issued-style pinback Iron Crosses. The great bulk of screwbacked Iron Crosses is vaulted to some degree. The obverse’s paint rates at about 85%. The backing plate on the reverse measures 1 1/2″ in diameter. A locking nut secures the plate to the Iron Cross. No hallmarking appears for manufacturer or silver content. This is a value-priced, screwback Iron Cross.
