A Bar to the Iron Cross 1st Class 1939-Die struck alloy construction, second pattern, frosted nickel/silver plated award is in the form of a national eagle with outstretched wings, clutching an oak-leaf wreath which encompasses a canted swastika above a horizontal, trapezoidal, date bar with diagonally angled ends, and embossed institution date, "1939". The award shows nice detailing including feathering to the eagle wings and a subtly textured background field to the swastika and the date bar. Complete with original hinge, pin and catch assembly. Excellent!
