    Thanks Greg,

    I will find a place in the showcase for them, instead of the bin :-)

    I was wondering if anyone could offer some insight. I believe it is real, the hallmark is H (Hossauer, Berlin?). However, I think someone's touched it up or it wasn't made to a high standard. There's paint between the iron core and the silver rim. On other examples I have, the core moves freely which I kind of like.

    The cross looks good to me and I do not believe the core
    is repainted. The ribbon is another matter. I think it (ribbon)
    is a modern replacement.

    Could be a bit of black tarnish you see in the recessed
    areas of the frame that looks somewhat like paint.

    I also think it is fine........

    Ack, thanks guys. Reference the ribbon, I think you're right. It doesn't sit on the ring like it has been for more than a quarter century.

    Default Eiserne Kreuz 2. Klasse 1813 Fake

    Gentlemen,

    I am quite certain that this is a fake. I don't know if I should be putting this on here, but I thought it would be worth a shot. It is a three piece construction with a magnetic core. The frame is slightly split in one of the corners.

    My gut tells me that you are right about it being fake. However,
    I have spent the last half hour comparing it to known originals.

    The core details are very close to what I would expect an original
    to look like. The blank side of the core looks wrong to me. Which
    makes me think that this was a 1914 that has been sanded down.

    The frame is the biggest red flag to me. None of crosses that I looked
    at had anywhere near the amount of flashing on the inside edges.

    All that being said, I can not say for sure it is a fake. I would really
    like to see some clear, straight on, CLOSEUP shots with the cross
    facing right side up. (ring at the top). preferably without as much
    glare on the frame.

    Like I said, my gut says fake BUT it does still have possibilities .
    I would like your permission to post your pictures on another
    forum that I am active on that has several 1813 owners as members.

    donny1boy,
    Is the small jump ring soldered to just one side
    of the frame or to both sides? The more I look
    at this cross, the more I am beginning to like it.

    I would really like to see a good close up of the
    cross with less glare on the frame so I check
    the beading and corner cross hatching.
