    Freshly listed. Could be a good deal if it's legit, right?
    The core looks repainted , also if your in the US you can sometimes find cheaper then $195

    Good KO (Klein, Oberstein). Core is not repainted, this KO type has originally such "fat" paint - I call it leather look.
    I had such cross, it´s the only KO type, that doesn´t loose paint too much.

    I agree, 195 dollars is quite too much. But if you are beginner, James, take it. It´s perfectly good cross, so you´ll learn a lot from it, worth that 30 dollars that you´ll pay extra. (and before that, you can still make a reasonable offer, as I see...)

    Good cross. I agree with Miro, it's not repainted.
    At $195 it's not really a bad price for a 1st class
    in the US. Not a great price but not bad.

    I think everyone should have a KO in there
    collection as I believe these were the main
    awarded cross.

    As for who "KO" was, there are 2 or 3 different
    ideas but in all reality, nobody knows for sure.

    Thank Chopperman. About "KO" is now clear.

    There is no straight evidence, but one thing is sure - Königliches Munzamt Abteilung Orden never produced a single Iron cross.
    On the other hand, there are some evidences supporting Klein, Oberstein, being the maker of KO cross. It´s mainly quantitative theory - if you will browse this thread back, you will find some info.
