Hello, I am being offerd this cross but I think it is a repro, "Rounder"? I am a novice with Iron Crosses and wondered if you could give your opinions.

I cannot tell much from the photos at present (viewing on phone), but I would say it is an original Fritz Zimmermann cross.

"Rounder" was a name given to reproduction Knight's Crosses, not Iron Crosses in 2nd Class. . .
The Gentlemen above are correct. This is an original Zimmermann EK2 and not a 'rounder' fake Ritterkreuz.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
