GERMAN:-THIRD REICH WAR ORDER of the GERMAN CROSS
A super used example of the War Order of the German Cross, in gold, commonly named the ‘German Cross’
This award ‘badge’ is in excellent damage free condition with only age and service wear.
Its multi-piece construction is held together by a four rivet reverse assembly (indicating it is of German rather than Austrian manufacture).
The broad fitting pin is maker numbered 20, this being ‘C.F. Zimmerman Pforzheim’.
The black enamelled centre swastika is damage free, there is however wear / finish loss to the white field that it sits in (see images).
There is minor finish lose / wear throughout, hence I would rate this item as an 8/10.
The award is of the correct know manufacturer dimensions.
A nice untouched item !
