    Default Eisernes Kreuz 2nd Klasse look at this!

    Here is one picked up today. I have a few EK's ( every TR collector needs a couple ) but I don't focus on them. This one got my attention real quick and it would make a nice centerpiece for an EK collection I believe. Anyone seen anything like this?

    Hello Steve,
    I suggest you check the seams closely and I suspect you may find that they have been re-soldered. Someone may have had it apart and accidently put the frame in upside down. Either that or it was a Monday job from the factory.
    I have a '27', Anton Schenkl, that the seams were soldered before I got it but they were out of alignment. I re-opened and straightened the frames out, then re-soldered.
    Here are a couple of before photos. You can see the excess solder.

    Here are a couple of after photos. The frames have been re-soldered correctly and all of the excess solder removed. The small amount of patina that was lost should return before long.

    Very interesting Ralph. Thanks for the photos. I cant find any indication that it has been re-soldered but I am limited in my experience. I can picture some fellow coming in hungover,making a batch of upside down crosses, and ending up at the Russian front!!

    As an after thought Ralph that is quite an undertaking that you performed on your cross. One that I would not take a crack at as it would surely not end well for me.
