WW2 German Iron Cross 2nd Class.  Eiserne Kreuz 2. Klasse.  The Iron Cross’ suspension ring is not maker marked. The loop at the top back is no longer soldered to the frame and as you can see, it is bent. The black iron center is magnetic and is slightly loose in the silver frame. It has no rust. The silver frame has a good bit of black patina. Measures about 44.5 mm across. 

In my opinion, this is definitely a worn original piece.  Super nice and “salty.”

A good condition original that has not been cleaned.
