    Had to look at this long and hard but the details do look similar. My first thought was Meybauer only because I didnt know who else it could be and I kept yours and Richards examples in mind. I dont know anything about Paul Meybauer's Crosses. Time to do some research. So I think its safe to say thats what it is. Im happy with it! Thanks again! Lee

    One more photo to add. I was able to obtain a better photo of the markings on the rings.

    While NOT original, this place has repro ribbon that works well for displays.

    I had one EK II (fair condition) that was without a ribbon and am using it for a school display. I found this, Iron Cross WWI 2nd Class Replacement Ribbon 1 ft uv-neg - eBay (item 330466070475 end time Nov-26-10 10:14:30 PST) , and was happy enough after it arrived as I didn't want to place a piece of original on it (the children are allowed to hold it, Hands on history, you know)

    OTTER76, welcome to this thread, your EKII is a nice well patinated example, unofficially affixed to a ribbon (probably by the owner/wearer) on a veterans organisation badge, for wear on civilian clothes. The Eagle badge is the Imperial "Reichsadler" of Kaiser Wilhelm II's administration, and was used on all official civilian (and some military) organisations, for example, the post service, colonial/diplomatic and Naval services, the owner/reciepient of the EKII being a member of such a department. The 1914 Iron Cross was awarded to both the military and civilians. (the only differance being the ribbon).
    Prost ! Steve.

    The civilian EKII ribbon was white with two black stripes - the opposite
    of the more common combatant version...........
