    Default Iron Cross Real or Fake?

    Here is a Iron Cross I have an opportunity to purchase. Looks real maker mark 20. Three layer construction. But I have read most Iron Crosses had a wider pin.

    Need assistance fast since I am supposed to do the transaction on Sat.

    Hi groserm,

    Both crosses are good, genuine wartime crosses.

    The first is a standard '20' marked Zimmermann, and the pin is typical of this maker.

    The second is an early unmarked Deumer with a Zimmermann style pin, more than likely this is copper plated ferrous core as opposed to a solid brass core (common among these pieces).

    Can't tell you much about the EK2 from that picture alone.

    Regards - Danny

    Thanks Danny, Stewy, jdubbel, Nick.

    I wish I found this site a month ago. I am new at collecting. Made some big mistakes. Stewy helped me from making a big one the other day. Finally got some books on collecting WW2 militaria. But it is nice being able to get infomation from knowledgeable collectors as yourselfs.

    Thanks,

    Rick
