    Default Cased Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1.Klasse mit Schwertern - Unmarked?

    Hey guys,

    I can't see any maker's mark with my naked eye. Well, I can faintly see what could possibly be a '3' under the arm itself. Picked this up from the same lot where I got some other good stuff.

    Let me know what you all think, thanks in advance!

    Anyone got any thoughts on this? I know it's somewhat run of the mill and not exciting but still

    A better, macro shot of where you think the '3' is might be useful.

    Hello,
    I think you have one of two makers of cross there.
    At first my thoughts lay with an unmarked Carl Poellath Cross and this is my main opinion. The pebble detail and wreath is a perfect match
    His marks would have been an 84 stamped on the pin.

    My second choice is Deschler who would have been marked on the pin with a 1.

    It will be interesting to see what a close up of the mark looks like.


    All the best
    Doug

    I don't recognize that as a Descher pin.

    I don't recognise that as a "3" pin either.

    No I think it is my first choice, I am going firm with it being an unmarked Poellath Cross.
    It is a perfect pebble, wreath and hardware match with the tombak crosses they produced.

    Deumer is way out
