VII. THE OUTPUT CONTROL AND PACKAGING

51. Output "meticulous" control with a strong emphasis on flawless and perfect execution - is the last step before packaging. Left: company owner Heinrich Kainz Senior.

52. Iron Cross II. class, together with ribbon, is inserted into the bag. The inscription on the bag: Iron Cross / 2nd Class / 1939. In the foreground, cut ribbons are visible. These were first supplied by company Carl Knobloch, Berlin, later by the Münchner Bandweberei Carl Loy.

53. A careful look must be given even at the last step - packaging. This basic rule made a name Deschler & Sohn big and keep it great. In the foreground, we can see individual packaging of Iron Crosses consisting of eight pieces in each package.

THE END

55. All credits to unknown member of Fisherman Club, society of Czech militaria collectors, who made this presentation possible by scanning the photos from period German journal and translating the text to Czech language.

Despite of all his effort, he did some mistakes, which I tried to find and correct as much as possible (see the notes). I did my best to translate the captions, as it is quite difficult text with many technical terms. When I am not sure with correct word used, the alternative is added into brackets. Intertitles and numbering the captions were added by me for better orientation in presentation.

Note for the moderator: maybe it would be good if posts of other users which were made while I was uploading the presentation could be moved up or removed to keep the presentation solid and undisturbed. Thanks to all who already posted, but I hope you understand this request.

Interesting article, well done Miro
This has content for pinned article, as it explains the procedure of making an Iron Cross clearly and just by redirecting people to this article could also save time and energy of many.

Best regards,
Daniel

Amazing presentation .the scheer amount of machinery and manpower that went into making just one iron cross makes one appreciate them even more .
