Description

Discontinued and Out of Stock. 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 gold plated, eight-point star mounted with the Third Reich First Class Iron Cross at its center. The Iron Cross is riveted to the vaulted star, which has a pin back attachment. Although a few of these were produced by Rath Jewelers in Munich, none of this version were ever awarded and only one example is known today. 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.

The Breast Star was 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 with the WWI First Class Iron Cross mounted in the center.
