    Silver is for the First Class types, or the Knights Cross versions.

    Lol - I was thinking of picking this one up myself, as I have
    a 2nd Class Iron Cross by the same '100' maker.........

    The maker 100= Rudolf Wachtler & Lange Mittweida. It is called a Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2.Klasse mit Schwertern .

    Better snap it up before I do ! - $45 is around the going rate these days.

    The ones without swords ( 1st and 2nd Classes ) are for some
    type of performance in non combat situations - to 'further
    the War effort'.........

    Its a fine cross, and its good to see that you have found a very reputable dealer. Now if i understand your question you want to know what the difference is between the one you have shown and a "silver" one. Ok unlike other German awards the War Cross did not follower the Black/bronze-silver-Gold ranking system. The one you have displayed is made out of tombac and is usually an early war version (copper-zinc mix) Where this one is made out of pure zinc and has tarnished. No difference in stature of the medal but different material compound. Although the tombac ones do have a nicer look.

    When you get into the Knights cross of the war merit cross you will find actual silver medals.

    Here is my set which is currently missing the 1st class without swords.
