A boxed example of the very rare Silver Spanish Cross without swords attributed to Rudolf Wachtler & Lange complete with LDO box.This rare award without swords was awarded to non combatants and is much rarer than the version with swords.
Only 327 were awarded.
Made by Rudolf Souval of Vienna. Three piece construction with silver stamped '800' to cross and suspension loop. Souval was one of the principal Iron Cross manufacturers and just after the end of the war and into the 1950's produced these Knights Crosses for war veterans and souvenir hunters such as American GI's stationed in the occupied countries. A very nice cross for those who would like one at the fraction of the price of a war time cross.
