Although it is common for the Iron Cross to be solely associated with the Nazi Regime, the symbol was originally used by the Teutonic Order of the 13th Century. It was later established as a military decoration by King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia in 1813, and has since been awarded during several military conflicts in history. It wasn't until World War II that the swastika was added during Nazi Germany.

 

This iron cross is a 1939, 2nd Class variant. It comes with the original issue packet/envelope and tissue. The suspension ring is stamped "1," meaning that this medal was manufactured by Deschler & Sohn in Munich, Germany. This piece is in mint condition, making it a very rare find.
