WWI German Iron Cross 1st Class, Screw Back, by Paul Meybauer Berlin-This vaulted, screw back private purchase example is a beauty! It was produced by the firm of Paul Meybauer of Berlin. The D.R.G.M. number on the screw back plate is 653416 and the manufacturer mark on the bottom indicates this. The black core finish has been repainted neatly at some time. There is minor wear to the beading around the cross. The reverse is stamped with the silver content, 900, to go along with the aforementioned markings. A very nice example!
