A nice hnoestly used piece! The Iron Cross is a multi-piece, die struck construction that has been soldered together. The single piece core is constructed out of an iron sheet metal base that has been black enamel painted. The frame and back plate are constructed out of a nickel silver base. The obverse features; a patte style cross that has a centrally placed embossed "W" (cypher for King Wilhelm II), below a Kings crown and above "1914" to the lower arm, which is all on a black base and surrounded by a silvered ribbed/beaded row and a flat outlying border. The reverse features a soldered block hinge, soldered round wire catch mounted on a matching base and oval wire pin. Nice patina remains throughout. The paint is we worn say 85%. A good example!
