Description
German Cross in gold.

Maker marked '1', Deschler .

Overall excellent condition. The center behid the swz is patinated(this is very common) but other than that the cross is near mint. No enamal or other damages. Needle and catch in working condition. Case is also in great condition. No issues.

Cross is named to a Hans-Günter Fischer. He was a major in Heeres-Flak-Artillerie-Abteilung 279 and was awarded the cross February 29th, 1944. This unit was part of the 25. Panzer-Division. There is also piece of a map with a city name circled "Stary Oskol" situated in the region Belgorod Oblast, Russia.
We have not done any further research, maybe he died there, with some time and effort I'm sure it will be possible to find out more.

Tyska korset i guld.

Tillverkarmärkt '1', Deschler .

Utmärkt skick. Den ljusa rondellen bakom HK med patina vilket är mycket vanligt för denna tillverkare. Alla metall och emaljdelar utan skador. Nål och hake i fungerande skick. Asken är även den i utmärkt, fungerande skick.

Korset är namnat Hans-Günter Fischer. Han var major i Heeres-Flak-Artillerie-Abteilung 279 och förlänades korset den 29 feb 1944. Denna enhet var en del av 25. Panzer-Division . Det finns även en lite karta med ett namn inringat, "Stary Oskol" vilket ligger i den ryska regionen Belgorod Oblast.
Vi har inte forskat mer men kanske dog han på denna plats. Eftersom att han var officerare så brukar det gå att forska vidare om man vill.

HISTORY:
The invasion of Russia saw the massive engagement of German troops, and certainly an important increase in acts of bravery. The German Cross (Kriegsorden) was created on 28 September 1941 (1) by Adolf Hitler (Führer und Oberster Befehlshaber der Wehrmacht) in order to publicly reward the heroism of the German Legions dispatched to defeat Bolshevism.

The award was created in two classes, Gold and Silver, independent of one another. The type in Gold had as its objective the recognition of repeated acts of bravery or exceptional command not justifying the award of the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross, but superior to requirements for award of the Iron Cross 1st Class. The type in Silver was to reward significant performance in military conduct of the war. Neither were in any way part of the classes of the Iron Cross. Because of this, recipients might first receive the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross and afterwards the German Cross—or vice versa. The detailed conditions for bestowal are shown in the ‘’Reichsgesetzblatt’’ of 2 October 1941 (Teil I, Nummer III).
