    For me, swas and wreath are poor and eagles head looks like a sparrows.

    That said wait for experts to comment as this could be a variant I dont know

    It looks like it was just poked onto that ribbon yesterday. I definitely don't like the detailing of the eagle.

    I'm not keen on it from these photos, the darkened recesses look slightly odd. It has the look of the 'Big Eye' spange which has been traced to the company of Ziemer & Sohne.
    Here's one I used to own:

    Thanks, Adrian, - comapring with your pics a find my spange identical. And I will try to find a better macro camera to make some better pics as well.

    This is not an issue "belive or not belive" from my side - just the source of this spange is so well known and reliable that it would be really big surprise if that spange appears to be a fake?

    But Ok - as I said, IŽll do some better pics and we will see. So far it seems to me the spange I posted here is Ziemer & Sohne.

    One more thing - this spange measures 30x30mm - not 31x31 (as they have to be?).

    Correct, the fact that yours is smaller tells me this may be a casting taken off an original.

    ...find another identical example to the spange I posted here.

    To Glenn66:
    in the same internet page find information that 30x30mm is the correct size...

    That's the same type of Spange as I posted above, check the details.

    From Previtera's reference 'The Iron Time: A history of the iron cross' pg 287. "Two versions are found, one full size at 31mm (W) x 31mm (H), and the second, classified as a Prinzen, measuring 24mm (W) x 24mm(H)".
