    Smile Searching for Post WW1 Freikorps German Knights/Iron Cross

    Hello,

    I am new to this type of collectible in general, (I am a consultant) and am currently engaged in a search for a client who is seeking a Post World War I Freikorps German Knights Cross (I believe it is also called an Iron Cross). I have had a difficult time finding items that meet this classification, having searched Ebay and e-medals.com. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction towards finding this type of item, I have mostly been finding World War II Iron Crosses which don't fit my client's specifications. Thank you!

    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    Please be patient, someone who can help you will be along. An Iron Cross/Eisernes Kreuz is different from what you are looking for.

    As Ralph said, not an Iron Cross at all, and the "Knight's Cross" is a mistranslation:

    The award pictured is the 1st Class of the Deutschritter-Kreuz des Detachement von Randow [Teutonic Knights' Cross of the Detachment von Randow].

    (Sorry; I don't know where to best find an authentic specimen.)

    A quick Google doesn't turn up much, just a few that were sold by Hermann Historica back a few years ago. If no one here has leads (and to be fair our esteemed HLP2008 has given you quite a lead with the correct name), I would suggest asking some European Dealers if they can scout around. Many of these higher end auction houses have good networks to dig up items for their periodic auctions (but buyer beware, not all that glitters is gold so you need to know real from fake). Maybe contact Klaus Butschek at Ratisbon's auction house
