This is a quality 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class. It is a slightly vaulted private purchase Iron Cross. The paint on the obverse would rate at 95%.The beading of the frame is quite fine and equal.

The reverse of the Iron Cross is the real “star” of this example. It has a flat pin on which we see the silver hallmarking of .858 (?). Underneath the pin we see professionally engraved: Oblt. Emke 1917. The pin when engaged shows a depression which indicates that this Iron Cross was actually worn on a tunic and through actual wear states to this fact.

An engaging high quality Iron Cross and it should be noted, that we don’t often see engraved to the owner Iron Crosses.

This is worthy of your consideration for your collection.
