    Today I purchased this three Iron Crosses 2nd class.

    No.1 is marked with KO in the suspension ring, No. 2 with EW (?), No. 3, (with three letters), I cannot read ...

    The loop of No. 1 seems to be repaired ...

    Iīm not collecting medals and orderīs, but I bought īem as "display itemīs", to show them together with some of my German WWI trench-kniveīs !

    I assume, all this ICīs are originals, what do you guyīs think ?

    Thx. in advance,

    R.

    P.S.:
    I had to pay 60,-- Euroīs for all of them, (incl. shipping), and I think, it was quite OK ?

    All nice pieces, IMO..................!

    Unmarked WWI EKII's over here sell for $60, with or without ribbon.

    #1 'KO' = Konigliches Orden.
    #2 'EW' = an unkown maker.
    #3 = 'W&S', 'HBG' or 'MEH' ?

    There is a list of known WWI EK makers marks at 'kaisersbunker.com'.

    Reibert, all three are O.K. 60 Euros !, a bargain, I have seen EK II's jump in price only in last 6 months or so, average price now around 40 Euros.....dont be tempted to clean, leave them as is. As for makers, "KO" = "Konigliches Muenzamt Orden" one of the Royal Mints in Berlin. "EW" is a known mark, but sadly it is an unknown maker. 12 known makers used a "3" letter stamp, see if you can make out at least one of the letters to aid in recognition, use a jewellers type magnifying glass.
    Prost ! Steve.

    All three are period originals.
