In 1971 someone in my family gave me what i have now learnt to be an iron cross. From a search on the internet, it does not look authentic. Can anyone tell me if it is, or exactly what it is? The crown on mine does not look like any that i can find picts of, and there is no W in the center of it. There was something, possibly a number on the back at the bottom; it is now too worn down to read. Any help would be appreciated. I am new to your forum, so please excuse me for not knowing something that you may think i should.
