    Default Question about Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse and ribbons

    I have noticed when I look around at dealer´s webshops and browse for a EK2 that sometimes the ribbon is attached to the EK and sometimes it is not? But still the ribbon is included alongside the EK and looks very ironed and perfect. Often referred to as a long ribbon. So I´m curious why is that? It also seems like the EK with the long ribbon is a little more expensive. Sometimes there are no ribbon at all and that I can understand.

    The long ribbon would have originally been issued like that to the recipient, who would have worn the cross and ribbon at the presentation ceromony. Later, the ribbon would have been cut in half to be fed though the second button hole on the tunic without the cross being attached, leaving the cross with a shorter ribbon to be kept somewhere safe.
