Nice original cross, don't try and remove the rust as it can cause more damage. Leave it as it is and keep the cross in an environment which will keep the rust from spreading ie; dry and even temperature.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Adrian is correct.
A nice pick up there

Thanks, I absolutely wasn't going try to remove the existing rust, just wondering if there was a way to keep it from spreading. I've got a shadow box that it'll stay in to keep it dust and moisture free.
Nice original K+Q OberpfalzM3, she's been through it by the looks of things, and deserves to be taken care of. Look after her, as Adrian has suggested, and no further deterioration should occur.
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.
