1957 Knights Cross of the Iron Cross
A very nice private purchase 1957 Knights Cross of the Iron Cross. Two piece construction, non metalic, German silver plate on brass core with black enamel and silver leaf detail. These were early production medals for dress uniform wear, they are perfect in detail, hand enamelled and thicker than the authorised state issued 57 KC, hence their popularity at the time. For the avoidence of any doubt these KCs are not modern copies but proper period dress medals. A good varient KC for the 1957 and Iron Cross collector that does not come up often. This KC has not been worn, the silver finish is still bright on all detail. This example did not have its silver loop hence price though its retains its ribbon length. Scarce KC.
