Here we have a unique vaulted, single piece tombak construction, screwback Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse, attributed to C. E. Juncker. The 1st Class Iron Cross was awarded to those who had received the 2nd class iron cross and preformed 3-5 acts of bravery in the face of the enemy, or actions that were clearly above and beyond the call of duty. It is a single-piece, die struck tombak based construction that has been silver washed and black enamel painted and lacquered. The obverse features; a pattée style cross that has a centrally placed embossed mobile swastika and "1939" to the lower arm, which is all on a black base and surrounded by a silvered ribbed/beaded row and a flat outlying border. The full back reverse features a centrally soldered on female screw piece and a two-piece washer and male screw back piece. The paint is remains 80%+ intact with loss to the date and swastika. Nice patina throughout. The cross measures approximately 1 ¾ inches wide and tall. Just find another!
