A fine original 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class.  This Iron Cross is of textbook 3 piece construction with a silver frame and magnetic core. It's suspension ring is marked "O" which, as far as I know, is an unknown maker. Condition is as depicted in photos, left arm of the cross has taken impact from something which has left the frame slightly dented and the core with a visible crack in it. Some discoloration is present. An interesting example. 


The Iron Cross (German: Eisernes Kreuz, abbreviated EK) was a military decoration in the Kingdom of Prussia, and later in the German Empire (1871–1918) and Nazi Germany (1933–1945). King Frederick William III of Prussia established it on 17 March 1813 during the Napoleonic Wars (EK 1813). The recommissioned Iron Cross was also awarded during the Franco-Prussian War (EK 1870), World War I (EK 1914), and World War II (EK 1939).
