Manufactured in gilded metal with white, black, green and blue fine enamels.
It measures some 10 cm from the top of the cross on the crown to the lower arm of the cross & is some 6.5 cm across from arm to arm….With some excellent details throughout. Crown, swords and Reich eagle are all very well executed and gilded An eye-catching advertisment for awards medals and military assesories: well made piece of Imperial Period shop wear. The picture featuring the rear of an Iron cross gives a sense of it size & its light convex form when in comparison…

BURGLARY

Our Family lost approximately £10,000  worth of goods  in our burglary all of it uninsured. (The insurance company is another storey.) Over the month since the 'break in' I watched  11 stolen pieces  of it nearly all Iron Crosses 1st class and their cases  being sold on Ebay.UK.  for a fraction of their worth.

The police were provided with the sellers Ebay name. the lot number of each of the  stolen items  and the approximate dates of sale.

What else can a citizen do?

I have had to sit and watch  these valuable pieces being sold  over a period of  4 weeks and the police have,  as far as I can see really not achieved anything.

I E.mailed the seller ( against the advice of the police ) he replied that he didn't understand but left his real Address I gave this to the police who contacted him and he handed over all he said he had, he had no idea they were stolen. He was a liar, he gave the police empty boxes after stealing their contents which he was selling on EBay and has now completely disappeared ( what a surprise ) The police actually interviewed him and let him go as they thought he was innocent.. I find that difficult to believe He was a thief at least as he returned empty boxes with the contents gone but they were shown on EBAY two days before.. The returns were worth about £400 ( out of about £3500.00 of militatria ). The police let him go !!!!! ?????? and as I mentioned he has since completely disappeared.. I give up !!

ALSO: Trying to contact Ebay.UK  "Law enforcement"  is a nightmare I  personally have  tried 15 times ( almost every  day ) and it just goes round and round. Starts off in the Philippines, you can then sent to New York, Manilla  Sheffield ? ( a false number I was given by Ebay in Manilla ) and other places that over a month I have logged. Finally you are always returned to  the Philippines call centre to yet again start the circle / circus …..with no result. It is as if they want to protect their reputation for purity and security by ignoring anything that might tarnish their image. Meanwhile Ebay is awash with stolen stuff. Ebay say that they will only act on a Police request though there appears too be no automatic Police access to their 'Law and Enforcement' section. I believe that department is a MYTH..!!

The police  must be able to disrupt Ebay organised crime. Every  Police  group dealing with Burglaries must be able to cut through Ebay.UK's  global  prevarication  to prevent these criminals selling their ill-gotten gains thus ensuring that ANY stolen goods in the UK can actually be stopped and collected so that crime actually does NOT pay………… as it does at the moment ! Just think about it £10.000.00 for an hours work! ( My local Police were unable to access Ebay.UK indeed they had not a clue what I was talking about. )

EBAY is an open sewer of stolen goods and the police appear unable to do anything. WHY ?
