The bag certainly wont belong as Karl Hensler didnt make EK2's
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
This is the cross from the MB Militaria update this afternoon correct?
"An example of the Iron Cross 2nd Class 1939. The cross in a very good, very slightly worn condition. The core with nearly all of the black paint, the frames with patina.
Not marked but a known variation that can be attributed to the company of Karl Hensler from Pforzheim.
The fitting large blue envelope in a very good, slightly used condition. Printed on the obverse with the designation "Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse 1939" and on the reverse with the cross maker "Karl Hensler Pforzheim.".
So what is the concensus as far as these crosses and packets are concerned at the moment, good or bad??
'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
In memory of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, Lawrence Oates and Edgar Evans. South Pole Expedition, 30th March 1912.
