Hi all,

Im surprised there isnt a topic called like this yet? Well, if I may, Ill let my tired Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse feel proud once more, by opening it. Feel free to have lotsa crosses join it!

No makersmark, a tired hinge, traces of age all around, YES, this cross went around the block. The ageing also makes it VERY lovely, I like that kinda thing. Also, this cross, has a copper'ish yellow'ish glow over it? Is that brass?

Enjoy,
Karin-Renate

Very stunning EKI, seems to me it's slight vaulted or is this a picture effect?

Sincerely,

Ricardo

Hi Ricardo

Thanx for the compliment! Yes, its vaulted, not, like, really domed? But slightly vaulted. And, that hinge, is a little bit busted? But still works.

Sincerely,
Karin-Renate

I'm with you on seeing beauty in aged, been there kind of stuff and think it's far more appealing than a new-like and mint example.JMO

Very nice cross too Joe. Is very interesting the format comparation between WWI and 3rd Reich era crosses.

Joe,

Here's another ... vaulted, with a bit of spidering to the paint and stamped 800.

Best regards!

Here's my only example, the rear and pin are marked 800, a vaulted example in it's case. No makers number that I can see.
