    Hello everyone! I have been looking at this Eisernes Kreuz/Iron Cross II Class from 1914, and it looks genuine, but I want to be certain before continuing to buy it. It is marked as Wilm, but I cannot find similar EK2’s which have been marked as Wilm. What does everyone think?

    The frame looks like it's been cleaned but I can't see anything wrong with it. There are quite a few posted on the forum, take some time to compare the frames and cores on those here and see if you can find a match.

    Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....

    Thank you for the reply. I’ll keep going through other ones, and compare.

    I found it. It seems that according to a post on GMIC, Wilm had 2 variants of iron core.

    It's a perfectly fine cross. The frame has been cleaned but not overly so.
    I would have no problem adding this cross to my own collection.

    --and yes, Wilm marked crosses can be found with different cores.
    I have pictures of at least 4 different cores in my files.

    A very nice 'Wilm' cross. I would add this to my Imperial EKs.
