Knights Cross of the War Merit Cross without Swords

The Knights Cross to the War Merit Cross, was introduced in August 1940, at the same time as the War Merit Medal. Its ranking in the German award structure was above the German Cross in Silver and Gold, but below the Knights Cross to the Iron Cross.  It was awarded sparingly over the war years, and because so few were presented the Cross was held in high regards by the Nazi hierarchy, giving it an aura of exclusivity which it may not have fully deserve since it ranked below the Knights grade of Iron Cross.  Great ceremonies were normally staged around recipients, with Hitler almost always presenting the award in front of high ranking Military and party officials.  In the last year of the War, the Knights Cross in Gold was introduced as the highest grade of the War Merit Cross.  Partly due to its late introduction date, this award was presented only a handful of times. 

These beautifully recreated Knights Cross of the War Merit Cross without swords are a must for reenactors and collectors alike.
