Cased Knights Cross Of The Iron Cross With Oakleaves & Swords.

Stunning example of a RK with Oakleaves and Swords by S&L and Souval.

The award was produced by Steinhauer und Lück and is a B Type with a non magnetic zinc core and silver plated neusilber frame.

The collecting community believe that they were produced postwar by S&L on the original dies, but early on in our collecting history these crosses were considered early war!

Beautiful crisp core with high relief swastika and dates with very little wear.

Crisp neusilber B Type frame with a frosted and burnished finish.

High quality soldering as per period examples and beautifully hand finished.

Attached are an early set of 800 silver marked Oakleaves and Swords manufactured by the firm of Rudolf Souval. Nice crisp and clean strike with the loop clearly stamped 800.

Complete with a long length (44cm) of UV negative ribbon

The case is early post 57 example with black velvet fitted base and white satin padded upper. Both push button and hinge are magnetic as per the wartime cases.

Now with wartime examples getting in excess of £18,000. These early samples are rising in popularity as well as financially.
