Rare, original formal presentation folder for the formal Knights Cross award document, 14 1/8" x 17 5/8", the boards covered in burgundy grained red leather and the front cover bearing a left-facing eagle clutching a wreath encircling a swastika. Within, the folders are lined in parchment with the outer edges bearing the same red leather bearing double lines of gilt trim. The maker's name, "FRIEDA THIERSCH", appears in small embossed gilt letters at the bottom of the inside of the rear cover. This example bears significant damage, having been separated at the central hinge, and is worn, abraded and bumped almost throughout - nevertheless, it is the "real deal" and once restored could be matched with any Knights Cross award. Should be examined.
