Attractive - albeit clearly used! - 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' (or: Iron Cross 1st class) being a non-maker-marked (and fairly early war-period!) example as was - I deem - produced by the desirable 'Hersteller' (ie. maker): 'C.E.Juncker'
The attractive - albeit surely issued- ie. clearly worn - iron cross is a typical minimally-vaulted- (ie. somewhat converse-shaped) example that has never been cleaned nor polished. It retains a very attractive age-patina and/or nice, pronounced detail as to be expected for an IC by this desirable maker. This example - which is as stated above a typical non-maker-marked specimen - was - I deem - produced by the desirable maker: 'C.E. Juncker' as was based in the town of Berlin (ie. 'Hersteller 2') and that comes naturally firmly mounted onto its original- (and naturally unaltered and/or fully functional) flute-shaped pin and/or typical catch (-set-up). The cross - which is a magnetic example as more often found - shows a neatly 'blackened'- and/or fairly 'satin-like' (ie. shiny!) inner-core that shows some (minimal) paint-damage within the swastika-area (as can be seen on the pictures): it has, however, clearly been issued and/or moderately worn and is still a bit stained and/or dirty (it was never cleaned though and has lost its 'off-factory'-applied polished sides ie. 'hochpolierte Kanten'). I deem that I have priced this attractive, 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' by the 'C.E. Juncker'-company according to its moderately used and/or totally untouched condition: a pristine example would most cerainly fetch much more than my asking-price!
