    Default Eisernes Kreuz 2nd Klasse terminology.

    Here are a couple of pics I dug out regarding the terminology used to describe the EK2 (it can also be applied to other grades). It may be blindingly obvious to some here but to those who are new to the game, I hope you will find them of use.

    Hi Nick,
    Yes, the spidering is caused by rust under the paint on the core. It shouldn't put you off buying a cross that has this but be careful not to break the ridge of paint or it may deteriorate. I've got crosses with this and it hasn't progressed, just make sure you keep them correctly, no moisture/humidity, even temperature etc.
    Off the top of my head the following makers produced crosses with the hump:
    1 - Deschler
    2 - Juncker
    3 - Deumer
    4 - Steinhauer & Luck
    7 - Meybauer
    22 - Boerger & Co
    40 - Berg & Nolte
    100 - Wachtler &Lange
    122 - JJ Stahl
    L/56 - Frunke & Brunninghaus

    There is also another EK2 which had a hump, an unknown maker and a rare cross to find. I only know of probably 5 or 6 such examples. The hump on this one is only on one side of the frame although some examples have the hump on both sides.
