Good afternoon timcopi,

here a very interesting link to some originals "Eisernes Kreuz".

"Iron Cross Private Collection. The Iron Cross was first issued on March 10, 1813 by King Frederick William III of Prussia. It was revived in the time of major conflict such as the Franco-Prussian war, the First World War and again on 1st September 1939. Shown here is a private collection of 1939 Iron Cross 2nd Class awards from many various makers. Each image contains makers notes where identified."
