OTTO SCHICKLE KNIGHTS CROSS OF THE IRON CROSS COMPLETE WITH OAK LEAVES, OAK LEAVES AND SWORDS.
Schickle was an authorized manufacturer of Knights Crosses during the war, but was also a commercial producer of wearing copies. The Oaks and Oak Leaves with Swords are wartime commercial made by Schickle for replacement, or field wear. The Oak Leaves and the Oak Leaves with Swords are both made of alpaka silver. Just like the frame of the Knights Cross. Both are hallmarked L/15 like the Knights Cross. The Oaks and Oaks with Swords both have a lovely age patina. A wonderful set, and a welcome addition to any collection.
