FRAMED 1914 IRON CROSS 2nd CLASS DOCUMENT

SKU: 31-31

$275.00

In my viewpoint, this is one of the more elaborate and beautiful of the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class award documents. The document within the matte measures an extraordinary 14″ x 11.” It resides in a modern frame that is quite tasteful, and measures 20 1/2″ x 15 1/2.” The document features an oval wreath topped by a Hohenzollern Crown with Stole. At the bottom of the wreath hung by a ribbon is a 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class. Before this document was framed, it had been folded several times. Fortunately, the document shows NO separations or tears. While it is difficult to read the name of the awardee, it appears to be a man named Lounocd. He was assigned to the 10th Kompagnie of Reserve-Infantrie-Regiment Nr 201. The award was made in 1915 (thus the elaborate document. Toward the end of the war they were often issued on foolscap and signed by Kompagnie Kommandeurs, rather than a General as on this document). It is signed by a General whose name I cannot read, and no identification is present to reveal if he was a Division or Armeekorps Kommandeur. Still, this is a magnificent presentation ready for your wall.
