Cased Silver Spanish Cross with Swords by L/12 900

A 2. Klasse Silber Spanien-Kreuz mit Schwertern im Etui by L/12 – C.E. Juncker of Berlin. The Silver Spanish Cross with Swords was awarded to those who had at least moderate combat experience, having participated in decisive battles. It is a multi-piece construction made out of a die struck 900 silver content base with frosted highlights and was finished in a protective lacquer coating. The obverse depicts a convex pebbled Maltese style cross with two crossed broad swords and four Luftwaffe eagles to each corner, that has an encircled (separately soldered on) mobile swastika to the center. The full back concave reverse is LDO maker marked “L/12” and “900” (silver content designation). It also has a soldered on c-shaped catch, soldered on block hinge and coke bottle pin, all of which are in well working condition. The detail and patina are beautiful! It measures approximately 2 3/16 inches wide and tall. The award comes housed in its appropriate case. It is constructed out of a wood and pressed cardboard base that is covered in a simulated grained blue leather. To the front is a multi-piece plated steel, rectangular spring loaded closure button. To the back is a steel, staggered, piano hinge that is covered in the simulated leather. The interior-bottom of the case is constructed out of a pressed cardboard base that is covered in a blue fibrous velvet material that outlines the pin, hinge and catch assembly. The interior top is constructed out of a blue satin and has an underlying pad. It has the odd scuff and pressure mark but is in excellent condition! The case measures approximately 3 inches wide by 3 1/8 inches deep and 1 inch thick. A great assembly, with beautiful patina and a desirable maker!
