IRON CROSS – 1914 – 1st CLASS – VAULTED – THREE PIECE SCREWBACK
This is a vaulted, three-piece, 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class. The paint is clean and rates at about 97%. The cross’s frame displays an excellent patina. The cross’s reverse features two small, domed nuts. Their posts were inserted through reinforced holes cut into the tunic. Mounting the Iron Cross in this manner stabilized the decoration. No silver or manufacturer’s hallmarking appears on the reverse.
