This is a combination of an award document for a 1914 Iron Cross and the actual medal. The document measures 4″ X 6 1/2 “. It is typed on onionskin. The document’s condition is not the greatest. It has some tears. It is complete, however. The award was made to Feldwebel Leutnant Gebhard, who served in Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr 212. It appears he was in a military hospital near Hamburg recovering from wounds he suffered at the Front. The date is 28 December 1915. It is signed at the bottom in purple grease pencil. [I cannot read the accompanying comment, or the writer’s name]. The Iron Cross that goes with it is a very salty, well-used example. It is very slightly vaulted. The paint’s condition is poor. The pair has a lot of character.
