What a frosty cased example 1st Class Spange to the Iron Cross by Otto Schickle! This piece is constructed out of a die-struck nickel-silver base that has been silver washed. The obverse features a National open winged eagle clutching a wreathed swastika within its talons, above a trapezoid bannered “1939”. The full back reverse shows a soldered block hinge, soldered rectangular wire catch and cocke bottle pin. It displays wonderful frosting and details throughout! It measures approximately 1 ¾ inches wide by 1 ¼ inches tall. The award comes housed in its original case. The case is constructed out of a wood and pressed cardboard base that is covered in a simulated, grained black leather. The very top features a silvered 1st Class Spange. To the front is a rectangular steel, spring loaded closure button. To the back is a steel, staggered bar hinge. The hinge and the closure button continue to function well. The interior top lid is lined in pearl satin and has an underlying pad. The bottom interior of the case is made of a black felt covered cardboard and outlines the pin, hinge and catch assembly. A nice one!
