This is a beautiful circa 1916 Prussian Iron Cross 1st Class in screwback. This insignia has a patented affixation (DRGM). This was most likely made by the badge-maker Maybauer. On the badge is a crown up top, below that is the letter “W,” and “1914” lies at the bottom.
Approximately 1-3/4” x 1-3/4” x 1/4” height
“W. D.R.G.M. 653146”
This is from a Prussian Militaria collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VDEJX17 LEIEX03/17
8+ (Excellent): Light wear. Screwback works well, tarnish adds to the look.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original, and of the period stated.
