The Iron Cross 1st Class (Eisener Kreuz 1. Klasse) was re instituted in 1939. The criteria for award was similar to the E.K.2. except that three to five additional acts of bravery were required. Approximately 300,000 E.K.1.s were awarded. These are very nice reproductions featuring sharp details and very nice silver plating.
