    For Wehrmacht soldiers to be awarded Iron cross second class you had to do a strong act of bravery/courage
    To receive first class you had to do same but more then once, I believe around 4 or 5 times.
    To quote Sebastian bianchi's website,
    "the award was regularly awarded to U-boat Commanders upon sinking 50,000 tons and to Luftwaffe pilots when they achieved six or seven confirmed kills. Of course these were only guidelines, and a single act of great importance or a long steady career could earn the individual the Cross."
    Im looking for an a case to an 1936 olympics medal and a case to entry to austria medal. pm me If you have any spare.
