Iron Cross restoration

Article about: G'day all, I've had this cross for over 30 years and as you can see it's had a hard life so i thought i'd have a go at sprucing it up, as you can see the rings are long gone so i've sourced

    Way to go!! Perfect!!
    I like it very much!
    All do the ribbon looks brand new; soak it in very strong tea so it will tarnish, that would make it complete.
    Be care full when taking the ribbon off and don't put the medal and the ribbon in hot tea, as the heat may losen the glue!!

    Phill, is it just my eyes, whats happened to the grooves on the borders edge, in the very first photo you can see them although not very clearly but in the latest ones it appears as if they've gone

    Did the Tea Dye Stuka, I like it, very subtle and takes that brand new look off it. Tried to modify the Bourbon box but no good so i bought a Newy with lights in it!!
