One of the most difficult Knights Cross of the Iron Cross cases to find, this is the maker marked version of the Klein & Quenzer presentation case.  Apparently most K & Q RKs were awarded with an unmarked case, so the maker marked examples are fairly rare, and there are no other RK manufacturers known to have maker marked their cases.  The black leatherette covered case features the correct rounded corners and impressed 'line' around the perimeter of the top surface. The interior of the base is covered with black velvet with an inset for the ribbon and the cross. The inner lid is finished with padded white satin/artificial silk.  The white artificial silk covering the hinge area is intact but has light staining as can be seen in the photos. The exterior of the top of the case has a small dent in the center which does not affect the integrity of the case.  The RK ribbon is ------ in length and does not appear to have been used. The exterior of the case shows handling and wear; the bottom of the exterior is missing a couple of bits of leatherette along the chamfer, and some of the leatherette on one side has pulled away from the case.  These are easy repairs if desired. 

Empty Klein & Quenzer marked cases are rarely found for sale; if you have an uncased RK by Klein & Quenzer, this is an excellent opportunity to give the cross a home!
