Knights Cross of The Iron Cross Miniature
The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross or simply the Knight's Cross and its variants were the highest awards in the military and paramilitary forces of Nazi Germany during World War II.
The Knight's Cross was awarded for a wide range of reasons and across all ranks, from a senior commander for skilled leadership of his troops in battle to a low-ranking soldier for a single act of military valour. Presentations were made to members of the three military branches of the Wehrmacht (army), the Kriegsmarine (navy) and the Luftwaffe (air force), as well as the Waffen-SS, the Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD—Reich Labour Service) and the Volkssturm (German national militia), along with personnel from other Axis powers.
This miniature version of the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross was worn on civilian dress, identifying the wearer as a holder of this much covetted award. This half-size miniature is die-struck, and benefits from a silver plated and black painted finish. The cross measures 25mm across and is supplied with a length of miniature Knights Cross ribbon.
