GERMANY – IRON CROSS – 1914 – 1st CLASS – THREE-PIECE SCREWBACK WITH AN IRON-CROSS-SHAPED BACKING PLATE
This is a three-piece screwback 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class. The cross is a non vaulted (flat) design. The obverse’s paint rates at about 90%, with some loss of paint on the cross’s high points (crown, “W,” and 1914). The Iron Cross’s reverse reveals a backing plate cut in the shape of an Iron Cross, always a desirable, high-caliber touch. A nut with a handle that tightens down over the backing plate and the Cross appears on the back. No manufacturer’s or silver hallmark is present.
