WWI German Iron Cross 1st Class, Screw Back- This vaulted, screw back private purchase example is very handsome! The silver frame and backing are evenly toned. The core finish remains 90% intact. The screw back plate is produced in brass. The reverse is stamped with the silver content of 800. The tips of the frame of the 3 and 9 o'clock arms are event turned back, very interesting. A great piece!
