    Default "S-W"?? Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse

    I just got this today, I believe it's an S-W with a "sand cast core"? It's a 1914 Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse and a VERY fragile original ribbon.
    I'm wondering if anyone can tell me more, confirm "S-W"? Are these good, hard to find, common? General comments welcomed.

    'S-W' is 'Sy & Wagner'. Perfectly good - and a quality
    maker, IMO. Not rare per se, as they can be found
    quite easily. This mark is also seen on EKI's.........

    NIce quality cross from a fairly common maker.
    I'm holding judgement on the ribbon. That is one I would
    like to see in person to be sure about.

    It is not one of the early S-W cores. Please take a look at the
    one posted by Ralph just a couple days ago-------

    Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse for review

    It's a completely different looking core. The crown, date and "W" are all different.

    I took the ribbon off and the tear visible near the top nearly came apart. I measured it and it has the 13 ribs per centimetre (I think that's right but I had the article pulled up when I did it) and the thread passes the burn test perfectly, just ash. It's REALLY old and very fragile ribbon. I was scared to thread it back through! I got this from an antique and estate dealer in NY, it came from an estate sale. I'm very happy with it personally.

    You did your homework
    My reason for the comment was from the pictures, I could
    not get a good feel for how the looped edges of the ribbon looked.
    One edge looked knotted instead of looped which usually is not a
    good sign.

    Congrats on a nice cross.
