Description
 
The Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross was intended for the most successful General officer at the conclusion of a war.  The Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross was manufactured for the Second World War, but it was never awarded. The only known example was found by Allied occupation forces at the end of the war and is currently on display at the West Point museum. It is believed that Reichsmarschall Göring was the intended eventual recipient. The design was based on the 1914 version of the Star of the Grand Cross, but with the 1939 Iron Cross as the centerpiece. These are very nice reproductions featuring multi-piece construction and sharp details.
