This is the standard, Imperial German issue, 2nd class Iron Cross. It is made from a 3-piece manufacturing process, its construction has a magnetic center.
A great addition to this specific Iron Cross is that the cross is maker marked to the suspension ring “KO” This is a manufacturer’s identification for the firm of “Königliches Munzamt Orden, Berlin”.
The cross is in very good condition and retains almost all of it’s original black paint to the core and it has a nice age darkened patina to the frame.
The Cross comes with a piece of original ribbon. This is a very nice and collectable maker marked Iron Cross from the Great War.
