Very interesting paperweight that a lieutenant or one of his family members had made to celebrate his winning of the Iron Cross First Class. The EK1 was, of course, a prestigious valor award and earning this medal would likely be a highlight in a soldier's life. The bulk of this paperweight is the clear plastic composite in which we often see old coins or similar mementos suspended. On the bottom is what appears to be the newspaper announcement of the award given to Leutnant d. Res (Lieutenant o...
