    Default Adolf Hitler 50th Birthday Silver Presentation Cross

    Hi again All, before you is an Adolf Hitler 50th Birthday Silver Presentation Cross, supposedly awarded to a select few before the reinstallment of the Iron Cross in 1939. I have seen only one other that was for sale for around $2000. On the reverse is imposed the signature of AH, much like the Mother's Cross, and marked Berlin. My jeweler examined it and declared it somewhere around sterling. Also in my collection is the same cross with swords much like the swords to the Oak Leaf Cluster with a ribbon ring rather than bottle pinback as this one has. I believe the cross to be authentic but am offering it to your scrutiny and all comments are very welcome.
    Also will try to include photos of a Spange Bar to the Iron Cross for your viewing and comments.
    Thanks!
    Reno

    BOGUS .........! It could possibly be some sort of un-official 'jewellery'
    I suppose, but it is VERY cheap looking. Not a fan.........!

    That's Ok...I invited comments. But neither looks cheap to me. However, even the best originals only cost a couple marks to produce at the time. That's why they were called the knives, forks and cauliflower to the tin tie,, the German Cross was called "the Order of the Fried Egg", and the Eastern Front medal the Eisbeinorden, "the Order of the Frozen Feet"
    Thanks, you are welcome to your opinion, expert or not

    Sorry, Reno. Absolutely not a period original.

    Indeed. In almost 40 years of collecting and studying militaria,
    I've never seen this cross anywhere.........

    Safe to assume that a piece made to celebrate the 50th Birthday of Adolf would not be of this terrible low quality but that aside this is a fantasy !!

    You're exactly right, I agree completely. At that time the WWII Eisernes Kreuz and the Ritterkreuz (and even WWII itself) did not exist...

    The frozen meat award was so named because of the terrible winter of 1942/42 where temperatures dropped to - 50 in Russia and many German soldiers froze to death and / or suffered from frostbite !! The DKiG looked like a fried egg or so the the soldiers thought , just like the RK was known as the throat ache , nothing to do with how much they cost although all these awards were made of much higher quality than this one you have posted,

    cheers
