    Default 1939 Spange zum Eisernen Kreuzes 2er Klasse 1914

    Hi folks,
    Im new in this forum and I would love to start with a question..
    Couple days ago I got a medal bar with an Iron Cross 1914 2.class with attached clasp 1939. The clasp is maker marked L/16.It is NOT a full size clasp,its a miniature but,without prongs.As far as I see,there have never been any prongs on.
    Have you ever seen those clasps? I cant find any pictures or details in net
    Hope you can help me
    Best regards
    Wolf

    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    Please try to take some straight on photos of the head and shoulders as the detail in this area is important. Here are some photos for examples.

    I don't like it as the head is wrong and there is no pebbling around the swastika or the date box. I have seen EKII spanges same style and they are fake as I suspect this one is. Here is a picture of a prinzen L/16.

    My word is my honor and bond. Currently looking for an EKI second model screw back Juncker spange. Also, marked EKI screw back cases.

    What you have is a miniature and those are not used on medals but on ribbon bars. A Prinzen measures approximately 23mm. Your miniature is good and there are a lot of different styles for maker. Yours would have been mounted on a pin like this one. Jim

    If you bought the bar because of the spange, I would recommend sending it back. It looks like the spange was added after the fact (string on left side of spange). Jim

    It appears that there is a strand of thread hanging lose under the wings. Jim
