Here we have a beautiful 1st Class War Merit Cross without Swords! It was awarded for meritorious service behind the lines. It is constructed out of a die struck nickel-silver base that has been silver washed. The obverse depicts a centrally placed mobile swastika that is surrounded by an oak leaf wreath, which is tied together at the top and bottom, and is above a pebbled Maltese style cross. The full back reverse shows a nickel-silver soldered on sheet metal hinge, soldered on flat wire catch and coke bottle pin. The silver wash looks beautiful and it retains crisp detail! It measures approximately 1 15/16 inches wide and tall. Typical Deschler & Sohn configuration. A great piece with its original issue paper!
