It is a most unusual presentation/display case for a 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class. The case measures 7/8″ x 2 ½” x 4 1/8.” It is covered with black leatherette except for its top cover, which is made of beveled glass. This creates an imaginative way to display the Iron Cross. A catch at the front allows it to be opened for access to the Iron Cross. Once the lid is lifted, we see a fitted, light-beige, display platform for the Iron Cross. Just forward of the platform is a place for storing the ribbon. This rectangular area is covered with fine, white silk. In this case, however, the ribbon is attached to the Iron Cross itself.
The Iron Cross is in near-mint condition. The paint is absolutely 100%. The frame’s patina is in eye-catching condition. The ribbon attached to the jump ring is sewn together. The last feature we must share with you is on the presentation case’s reverse. An easel is attached the reverse that swings out so the cased iron Cross could be displayed at an angle on a flat surface.
Without a doubt, it is one of the most appealing, cased, Iron Crosses that I have seen. It is in top condition.
