Description

New from Reddick Militaria is the 1939 Star of the Grand Cross, an Iron Cross award commonly known as the "Breast Star". This version features a vaulted gold plated, eight-point star with the Iron Cross First Class mounted in its center and a wide, flat pin back.

First awarded in 1815 to Field Marshal von Blücher and was therefore known as the Blücherstern, or Blücher's Star. It was awarded a second time to Paul von Hindenburg in 1914 along with the first Iron Cross, and were produced on a limited basis as this was a very high level award. Although a few of the 1939 models were produced by Rath Jewelers in Munich, none were ever awarded. Only one example is known today and it is on display at West Point after being returned by the US Army after WWII. Our reproduction is an excellent copy, featuring sharp details and multi-piece construction.
