Here we have a 1st Pattern Spange zum Eisernen Kreuz 2. Klasse (Wiederholungsspange) by Boerger & Co. of Berlin. 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 with polished highlights and a lacquered finish. 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 scalloped trapezoid shaped pebbled bannered that reads “1939”. The full back reverse retains three of four soldered on flat wire tombak prongs. It retains beautiful crisp detail! It measures approximately 1 1/4 inches wide and tall. Tough to find these first patterns!
