If another auction participant places a bid for $125 dollars, the auction lot price will display $121 dollars having exceeded your previously submitted maximum bid by $1.00 dollar.

Croatia, Independent State. An Order of the Iron Trefoil, III Class with Oak Leaves, c.1941

(Red Željeznog Trolista). Instituted in 1941. Cross in black lacquered non-magnetic metal alloy, silvered centrepiece with red and blue enamels, framed by an open-ended wreath of oak leaves in green enamels, unmarked but of typical Braca Knaus of Zagreb manufacture, measuring 40.3 mm (w) x 41.8 mm (h), scattered chipping evident in the black lacquer on both sides of the cross and on the loop, along with scattered chipping in the green enamels on the wreath, on its lightly soiled original ribbon with dual snaps, better than very fine.

 

Footnote: The Order of the Iron Trefoil, also known as the Croatian Cross, was the highest military decoration of the Independent State of Croatia, and it was awarded for "acts of war, achieved by personal incentive, for efforts and good leadership in ventures, which had remarkable success against the enemy." The Order had four classes: the 1st Class is worn on a ribbon around the neck, 2nd Class without the ribbon on the left chest, 3rd Class on ribbon on buttonhole, and the 4th Class on triangular ribbon on left chest. For exceptional merits the Order was awarded with Oak Leaves. The recipients of the 1st and 2nd Class had the right to the title "Vitez" (Knight).
