    I think that yours is a 1870 made during ww2. Here is a link
    that shows a 1st class that appears to match yours.

    Iron Cross First Class 1870 - German Empire

    Thanks !
    I did not know they were making 1870's that late !

    I've heard of 1813 crosses being made during WWI,
    a centennial commemorative, I guess...

    Just thought I'd post a recent purchase. I know Greg's seen it before. Private purchase 800 marked vaulted. Inscription translates to "Conceal the longing in your heart with the cross on your breast, Thea"

    Cracking collection of 1870's Greg.

    Good on you Glenn.
    I am glad this one went to a good home. This is one of the most
    beautifull engraved crosses I have ever seen. I am sure this
    one will find a nice place in your up coming book.

    Thanks mate. I'm still jumping hurdles with the book but I'm determined to get there eventually. You'll be first to know!

    Next a late war EK2. It's still 3 piece construction; but the frame is silver plated steel (magnetic). As you can see very little of the silver plating remains & there's rust coming through the paint. Horrible quality really

    It's maker marker MEH. Anybody know who that is?
    Hi Chaps, here's my latest EK2. It's another MEH; but with the normal silver frame this time. I couldn't resist this one due to it's full length ribbon & it's lack of paint, due to polishing by the original owner I presume (there's no rust only polish residue) which has given it plenty of character. The MEH core is very different from other EK's, shame it's an unknown maker

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    Here is one that just arrived today. Those of you who frequent
    WAF might recognise this one. The owner was selling off some of
    his Eks and just could not stand to see this one lost to Ebay.

    1870 Wide frame with Oaks on a Austrian style mount.
