This unissued cased Iron Cross First Class came as part of a group of three and is the last of the group. Complete with its original case and paper card marked LDO, this piece is about as minty as you will find and would be very hard to upgrade. The silvering is still frosty and the black finish is almost factory perfect with virtually no handling wear. Although Deumer is not one of the more rare makers of the Iron Cross they were certainly quite prolific.
The Iron Cross was awarded for bravery in battle as well as other military contributions in a battlefield environment and became an iconic symbol of the German military machine. If one were to have a single example in his or her collection this would be hard to surpass!
