A nicely patinaed 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 wide block hinge, soldered round wire catch mounted on a matching base and "coke" bottle pin. The award is well marked "KO" beneath the catch. It is worn and has nice patina remains throughout. The paint is 94%. A good example!
