Eisernes Kreuz 2.Klasse value
Hi everyone ! !
I would like to know how much is worth a German Iron Cross that my dad brought back when he fought in WW2.
I think it's a second class with the years 1813 and 1939 engraved in it, I don' t have the ribbon though.
He served in the Canadian forces and I have a bunch of old pictures of his whole battalion as well.
Thanks for reading me and have a good day ! ! !

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
Your ID of it is correct. Values for these here in the UK are around £90. Without the ribbon a little less.
I would certainly like to see your Dad's photos.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
A picture of the front would be nice to see.
Is that a wide frame? Could be worth a little more if so...
It looks like maker 24
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
I agree, the '4' is clear on the ring but the '2' is a little wonky.
Pretty sure its a 24. I have its brother with no ribbon too!
IMO mm 24
but I also want to see the pictures if you can
I'm looking for EK II 1939: B.H.Mayer: A and B core,mm L/18 and schinkel type ,,,EK1 Round-3 with Deschler frame and Friedrich Sedlatzek pin and SB variant
This is a typical cross from the maker '24' with typical unclear date. The value is no more or less than any other standard EK2. This maker is quite common to find.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
