IRON CROSSES FROM 1813-1870

(CS1245) An Iron Cross 2nd Class having the date 1870 to one side and 1813 to the other. The cross measures 42.5 mm square approximately. The cross has nice detailing to the centre and has a nice silver frame soldered around the edge of the cross. There is no splitting or cracking to the frame or core. The ribbon loop on this example is unmarked. The iron core retains about 90% of the black finish. All in all, a nice example of what I believe to be a replacement 1870 iron cross. Priced as such. GBP 295.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC618) An 1813 Iron Cross 2nd Class. The cross is an unmarked example with the stepped core. Unfortunately as is often the case with these crosses, the core is cracked in two places. However, all the metal is still intact. The silver frame that encompasses the cross is the smaller style measuring about 40 mm. To the centre, the cross is plain on the obverse, with the reverse having the original oakleaf 1813 FW and Crown design. The cross has seen lots of wear and tear and is slightly twisted, which probably accounts for the cracking of the core. A nice quality cross in good condition for its age. Priced accordingly for condition. SORRY I AM SOLD GBP 695.00 (UK Pounds)

(P628) A Superb and scarce to find Iron Cross 1870 2nd class. The cross measures approx. 42.35 mm by approx. 42.55 mm not counting the eye ring. The core is iron and undamaged. The Ribbon loop is unmarked and the cross is nicely finished. For its age, I would say the cross is in superb condition. SORRY I AM SOLD GBP 295.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC617) A Nice example of an 1870 Iron Cross that I believe was manufactured in the third reich period for a museum display. The cross has an iron core encompassed with a silver frame that to the reverse, has some engraving showing a crown, and some initials. The iron centre is not split or cracked and the dates W and crown are very finely formed. The cross measures about 42 and by 42.6 cm which puts the frame into the WWI style. The cross could possibly be the type manufactured for museums and displays, before, during or after WWI. The award is nicely finished and is of nice quality. However, it is not an original 1870 to my eyes. Priced as such. SORRY I AM SOLD GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)
