The Prussian and German Iron Cross by V. E. Bowen.  This rare volume is the most comprehensive reference ever done on the complete series of awards of the Iron Cross, beginning with the 1813 model and continuing through the Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords & Diamonds as well as the 1957 versions. It details all the known manufacturers & manufacturing techniques, tooling & materials, their maker marks & codes, issue dates, general orders, etc.  Hundreds of examples of standard 1st & 2nd Class Iron Crosses & Clasps, German Crosses in Gold & Silver, Breast Stars, Knight’s Crosses, Oak Leaves, Oak Leaves with Swords, and Oak Leaves with Swords & Diamonds are all shown with front, back & extreme close-up views.  Ribbons, pins & screw-backs, rings, loops, attachments & devices, as well as miniatures, special engraved presentation examples, cases, and award documents are pictured in multiple variations and views.  Published in 1986, it is long out of print and highly desirable, containing 339 pages with hundreds of close-up, detailed photos as well as period photos of crosses in wear, an extensive bibliography and a list of museums where major Iron Cross collections are held.  Signed by the author, this rare, limited edition is case-bound with hard cover.
