Here we have an excellent example of Klein & Quenzer 1st Class Iron cross! It is a multi-piece, die struck construction that has been soldered together. The single piece core is constructed out of a steel sheet metal base that has been black enamel painted. The frame and back plate are constructed out of a nickel silver base that has been silver washed. The obverse features; a pattee 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 reverse features a flat back with a block hinge, round wire catch and coke bottle pin. The pin is marked "65", Klein & Quenzer. The border has nicely aged leaving a desired patina. The paint shows just a bit of wear to the edges of the Swas. and continues to remains 98% intact! A great example of a 1st class Iron Cross!
