Store: German Items: German Cross in Gold 134 Otto Klein

German Cross in Gold - Otto Klein: This is a beautiful example of the German Cross in Gold made by a very rare manufacturer.

The laurel leaves have a very rounded and smooth appearance. It takes close inspection to even notice that they are even laurel leaves at all. The medals are very light, since they are made up of a light weight alloy material, which does tend to hold their finish better than the earlier versions. This badge has been worn as can be told by the slightly bent starburst laurels and the ageing on the piece.

The reverse consists of four hollow (donut shaped) rivets. The pin and catch attached to a oblong rounded backing plate, which is then recessed into reverse silver plate. The pins on some of these awards are slightly curved at the tip, where it meets the catch. These awards can be found with maker marks 1(Deschler & Sohn), the most common mark 20 (C.F. Zimmermann), or the rarely encountered 134 (Otto Klein).

The rarely encountered 134 maker mark is found stamped dead center of the badge’s reverse and not on the pin itself. The stamping itself is done in Incuse-Relief. Incuse-Relief is done by punching the maker mark below the surface of the award, with the number itself (134), being a raised surface within the stamping.
