No other military award of the Third Reich era carries with it the mystique of the Knight`s Cross (Ritterkreuz) to the Iron Cross. Suffice to say that the men who proudly wore the Knight`s Cross at their throat had distinguished themselves in the crucible of battle. The Ritterkreuzträgers became the heroes of an adoring Nazi Germany. In fact, to this day the Ritterkreuzträgers are still held in high esteem in their own communities. In September of 1939, the Knights Cross was created by Hitler to bridge the sizable gap that had existed between the Iron Cross 1st Class and the Grand Cross. An unprecedented grade of the Iron Cross, the Knights Cross could be distributed to all ranks and more than a handful of times, yet recipients would remain part of an exclusive and elite group. This medal is made from the original Third Reich mould and is identical to the original. They may be called Post War Originals or true Museum Copies. Check the photographs and note the correct stamp\maker mark on medal and the loop is also stamped 800 & code L12 jewellers mark from junkers & co . They simply don`t come any better then this fine example. An excellent addition to any Third Reich collection. Now sold with ribbon.
