GERMANY – PATRIOTIC PIN – TRENCH ART – IN A PRESENTATION CASE
This is a distinctive trench art patriotic pin measuring 1 5/8″ in length. An eagle with widespread wings is centered on the obverse of the pin. The eagle’s background consists of a crosshatched rectangle decorated with a leafy sprig.
The reverse is engraved “1914-17.” This pin is housed in a custom case that measures 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8.” The case features a 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class on its outer lid. It is very similar to EK 1 cases in this respect.
Inside the case we have a blue/purple velvet platform on which the pin is mounted. The name of the jeweler is embossed on the inner upper lid. It is a very worthy presentation. .
