    Good cross. It has a very generic core so attributing it to a curtain
    maker may prove difficult.

    Hi Greg thank you!
    According to the seller, this cross is oversized compared to a standard Iron Cross 2'nd class from 1914.

    I have ordered it, puts out new pictures when I get it.

    Hey!
    Got the cross today and here are new pictures of it and a picture next to my Godet cross, It's a little bit bigger than the Godet cross.

    Hello again!
    The more I look at the ”stamp” on the ribbon ring I think it looks like A as in Assmann, can it be so?

    Best regards

    Nice cross.
    It very well could be an Assmann but I can not say for sure. The mark could
    be a very poorly stamped "A" or it could just as easily be a random tool mark.

    As I had mentioned earlier, it is a generic core that was used by several makers
    including Assmann at one point. ( It is not their primary core design )
    I have attached some pictures of some other "A" marked crosses that you might
    compare against. I did spend some time trying to compare frame characteristics
    such as the beading at the inner and outer corners without much success however
    you will notice that some of the "A" marked crosses do appear to use the wide frames
    like yours.

    Thank you so much for your help Greg, I appreciate it.

    I have also compared the A marked crosses that you have attached and some other crosses and have not found any that looks the same as my cross. I have too search further what it might be for ”mark” on my cross.

    Best regards
