Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse, Friedrich Orth Wien (15)
Here is the second one that I recently arrived.
A Friedrich Orth Wien (15), with poor number stamping that sort of looks like a 13.
However, I believe that the larger thin suspension ring a a trait of Orth EK2's.
On the obverse side, there is a little residue from where the seller had placed with
a cardboard square over the Swaz (possibly for customs reasons, but I don't know for sure).
Any ideas what I can use to remove it without harming the medal?
Once again, all comments and opinions are welcome.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the positive replies fellas.
Although I mainly collect helmets, these fit nicely, and compliment my lot.
I love them!
