This is the one award every collection should have! This is the complete set of Steinhauer & Luck A type Knights Cross, ribbon and issue case! What a beautiful example! The Knights Cross is a die struck, three-piece construction (single piece, black painted iron core and two piece silver frame). The obverse features a larger pattee style cross with a centrally placed embossed swastika, above an embossed "1939" all in black with a bright frosted ribbed and flat boarder. The reverse is a mirror image of the obverse except with no swastika and an embossed "1813" where the "1939" is. To the top of the cross is an integral ring. Just below the ring, to the reverse side, is the silver content designation "800". A suspension loop is attached to the ring and is also correctly marked with the silver content designation "800". The silver border of the cross remains bright and shines beautifully in the light! There is some minor wear. The black matte finished paint looks excellent! It only shows some minor surface wear. The cross is truly a pristine example!!! This piece wouldn't be complete without the ribbon and case! The original ribbon is approximately 20 inch long, 1 3/4 inch wide, ribbed and made of red white and black rayon! The ribbon is in excellent condition! The case is made of wood and pressed cardboard, with a simulated, grained, black leather covering. To the front is a magnetic, spring loaded, closure button. To the back is a magnetic, staggered, internal bar hinge. Both the hinge and the closure button function well. The interior of the top lid of the case is lined in white satin and has an underlying pad. The bottom interior of the case is made of a black felt material and outlines a Knights Cross. The case is in superb condition! Overall this piece is in excellent condition and is one everyone wants. Now it's your chance! This piece comes with an 8 page COA with a complete write-up and color pictures from Dietrich Maerz.
