Description

Spain Cross in Silver Class with Swords is maker marked 'L/11' indicating manufacture by Deumer. The cross retains nearly all of its original factory silvered finish, with a small amount of either wear to the finish or toning where it would have made contact with the uniform fabric (pin, catch, and some tiny areas on the reverse) of the wearer. Laid down block hinge, separately applied eagles and center, and excellent detail throughout. The blue leatherette covered case is the type without a push button. The inner lid is lined with medium blue artificial silk showing some discoloration where the cross's center makes contact, while the base is lined with dark blue velvet. The blue silk covering the hinge is separated on the right side as can be seen in the images. The exterior of the case shows abrading to the case edges, primarily on the bottom. Textbook Deumer with small 'L' marking.
