#CC2 Original Presentation Case for the George Cross Medal
Scarce original presentation case for the George Cross medal. This case would have been presented along with the medal to one of only 408 recipients to date. The Royal Mint manufacturers stamp inside the lid has the Kings Crown, dating this case prior to 1953. The exterior of the box is covered in textured blue leather with gold embossing details on the lid. The interior of the lid has a white silk/satin liner. The lower interior where the medal sits is finished in fine black velvet.  The two brass hinges are fully functional and in tact while slightly tarnished. The box shows age with minimal wear, overall the case is in excellent condition. The presentation case comes complete in the original brown paper envelope with hand writing “Charlie’s George Cross Box” who we assume was the original recipient, although us and the consignor are not aware of who George may be. The case dimensions measure 70mm (Width) 130mm (Length) and 22mm (Depth). The weight of the case is 104 grams. This is an extremely rare opportunity to own this very special case to complement an original George Cross Medal or specimen copy. Any questions or for more photos please enquire. We're not aware of any other examples of this case having been previously offered on the open market. $2875
