    Hi Joe,

    Yes, it's a 'heavy' type as can be discerned by the catch being soldered directly to the backplate. To be 100% accurate, this particular cross is known as the "C.E. Juncker, 2nd Model, Heavy, Unmarked."

    The difference between this and the very rare 1st model is the wreath design. It is slightly different, as the 1st type wreath was thinner and of smaller diameter and is easily spotted by having only 9 notches below the date shield whereas the 2nd type has 13, as does yours. The weight of the cross should be around 58.7 grams. It's a shame you may have to let it go mate.

    It is interesting to note that the Juncker 2nd model wreath was used on every cloth DK that was made and exists today.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thank you very much Ned for this interesting details you have give here!!

    You are right of course,that it is a shame to let it go.I become perhaps the chance to buy a piece for that i am searching for a long time.I am not sure if i get the chance to buy it,so it could also possible that the DK will stay in my collection......i will see.

    Regards

    DK's are my favorite medal and as they were created with the combat soldier in mind I always find them more desirable when they have been worn same as the Nahkamfspange,nice find.
