Title Iron Cross, 2nd class, 1939
Nationality German
Period c 1939-45
Sold

This was the basic grade of Iron Cross of which some five million were awarded in WW2. The ribbon is period, with some slight age soiling. The medal is in good condition, but the silver border is a little tarnished in parts. It is marked '55' on the ring for J.E. Hammer & Sohne of Dresden.

Interestingly enough, this particular award is rarely found as a competently made fake. There were a few pieces made in France in the early 1970s from original dies with triple figure identical number maker punches, eg 666.
