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 constructed out of a die struck nickel-silver base that has black enamel work. The obverse features; a pattee style cross that have a centrally placed mobile swastika and "1939" to the lower arm, which is on a black enamel base and surrounded by a flat outlying border. The full back reverse has a soldered on round plate knurled stickpin. The face measures approximately 11mm wide and tall. You can often find these in Imperial, but finding a Third Reich example is rare.
