MEDAL BAR – ONE-PLACE – 1914 IRON CROSS 1st CLASS. This is a one-place medal bar that has a 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class as the featured decoration. The Iron Cross is in excellent condition. The condition of the cross is excellent. The paint on its obverse and reverse rates at nearly 100%.
It has what appears to be a manufacturer’s and a silver content hallmark on its jump ring, but we cannot decipher either one. The silk ribbon is also in top condition. Its reverse boasts a sturdy pin. The Iron Cross is slipped onto the medal bar by means of a hook through the jump ring. The backing is a bit unusual. It is made of gray silk rather than the more common felt.
