Iron Cross Medal - EK1 1914 - Replica

Stock Status: In Stock

The Iron Cross was reauthorized by Emperor Wilhelm II on 5 August 1914, at the start of World War I. The 1813, 1870, and 1914 Iron Crosses had three grades, the 1st Class and the Iron Cross 2nd Class were awarded without regard to rank. One had to already possess the 2nd Class in order to receive the 1st Class (sometimes simultaneously). Prussia did have other orders and medals which were awarded on the basis of rank, and even though the Iron Cross was intended to be awarded without regard to rank, officers and NCOs were more likely to receive it than junior enlisted soldiers. The 1st Class was worn on the left side of the recipient's uniform.

This is an Iron Cross Medal - EK1 1914 1st class replica, based on the version from World War 1. A high quality reproduction, made of metal, it looks and feels like an original, with close attention to detail, with a clasp backing for ease of wearing.

Worn with a uniform or as part of a display, these medals are a great collectable. They are great for war re-enacting, as props for film and TV, and make an excellent addition to your militaria collection as a great display item.
