This may be the only 2nd pattern Boerger & Co. with a screwback device known in existence. A unmarked Spange zum Eisernen Kreuz 1. Klasse (Wiederholungsspange) by Boerger & Co. of Berlin. The 1st Class Spange to the Iron Cross 1939 was awarded to those who has already received the imperial 1st class Iron Cross and earned the 1st class Iron Cross again in WWII. It is constructed out of a die-struck tombak base that has been silver washed and lacquered. 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 centrally soldered on female screw piece and a male clamshell screwback piece. All components are non-magnetic and work well. Gorgeous detail and wonderful patina! It measures approximately 1 ¾ inches wide by 1 ¼ inches tall. A nice clamshell!
