Here we have a Spange zum Eisernen Kreuz 2. Klasse (Wiederholungsspange) by J. E. Hammer & Sohne of Geringswalde. The 2nd Class Spange to the Iron Cross 1939 was awarded to individuals who has received the 2nd class Iron Cross in WWI and would have earned the 2nd Class Iron Cross in WWII. It is constructed out of a die struck nickel-silver base that has been silver washed. The obverse of the badge depicts a German national eagle, with out-stretched wings clutching a wreathed swastika within its talons and is above a trapezoid shaped pebbled bannered that reads “1939”. The full back reverse retains all four soldered on flat wire tombak prongs. The reverse was cleaned by me as it had sticky tape remnants on it. It retains beautiful crisp detail and gorgeous silver wash! It comes with a 4 ½ inches of soiled black and white rayon ribbon. It measures approximately 1 1/4 inches wide and tall. Nice!
