(CS1001) A straight armed Iron Cross 2nd class in very good condition. . The cross is unusual in the fact that the arms are straight like the original design and this style is shown in the book "The Iron Cross 1939". The cross is also what several collectors call, a rattler, which means the iron centre moves within the core of the silver edging. There is some minor paint wear and bubling to the cross but nothing too serious. Very scarce to find. GBP 395.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1242) A German Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939. The cross is of standard quality and construction and is a nice unmarked example. The cross has the rounded frame type often associated with the Deumer firm. The core retains about 99% of its black finish with some minor age starining to the reverse on the dates. The cross retains much of its silver and frosted and burnished finish and could do with a mild clean. The cross has no splitting or cracking to the core and comes complete with a piece of ribbon. GBP 99.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1560) An Iron Cross 2nd Class by the Maker 65 being the firm of Klein and Quenzer who as well as manufacturing iron crosses, produced the prestigious Knight's Cross. The cross is of standard manufacture and is marked 65 on the ribbon loop. The cross retains much of its original paint finish and comes complete with original full length ribbon. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1336) A Nice and rare example of an Iron Cross 2nd Class converted to a Knight's Cross. The cross originally came from the Bowen collection who was the author of one of the first iron cross books, privately printed in the 1980's. The cross is actually illustrated on page 198 of the said guide and has a Forman lead seal attached to it. There is also a piece of original Knight's Cros ribbon. The overall quality is in very good privately converted condition. Nice to find one with a traceable history back to an author. SORRY I AM SOLD 30.4.19

(MC677) A Schinkle Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939 being the type that utilised the WWI frame. The cross is of nice quality and construction and as is usual, the ribbon loop is unmarked. The cross has nice silver oxidised and burnished frame around the non-magnetic centre, which was often the case for these early crosses. The quality is virtually near mint and it is nice to find in this condition. Scarce example for the iron cross collector. GBP 300.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC678) An Iron Cross 2nd Class in its LDO Case of Purchase. The LDO case is the standard two piece card paper hinged type with the LDO emblem in silver on the outside top of the lid. To the inside, you have a muted tangerine colour with a cut out to take the ribbon loop. There are no marks I can see to the csse. The cross which is in near mint condition, has no maker's marks either and is of standard three piece construction with an iron core encompassed by the silver frames. There is no splitting or cracking. In very good condition, another variation for the iron cross collector. GBP 395.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1575) An Empty Paper Packet for an Iron Cross 2nd Class. The packet is in very good condition and is an orange buffed example, with the award's designation printed in black ink to the front and the maker's trade name to the reverse. This is WILH. HAMMESFAHR SOLLNGEN. The packet comes complete with a long piece of original ribbon. Scarce to find. SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP 50.00 (UK Pounds)

(S814) A Nice Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939. The cross is a non maker marked example. It retains virtually all of its original painted finish to the iron centre. The silver frame which is the soldered type, is beautifully hand finished and holds the centre nice and sercurely. This has oxidised over the years, giving the cross' frame a two toned colour, as can bee seen on the scan. GBP 115.00 (UK Pounds)

(S895) An Iron Cross 2nd Class in good used condition. The cross could do with a sympathetic clean as it is tarnished in places. The cross is a non-ringmarked example and is of standard three piece construction, with an iron centre and silver frame soldered. The cross comes complete with a full length of original ribbon and is in nice overall condition. GBP 110.00 (UK Pounds)
