Looking for Ek1

Post by Prussian Garde » Sun Oct 13, 2019 11:00 am

Am interested in an Iron Cross 1st Class, have been on the market for a while but haven’t found any in a nice condition for a good price. Pm me with any that you have for a solid price.

Do your research on them before you purchase. There are more fakes than originals out there.
The following is from a statement given in 1919:
cannot understand the general desire if the American soldier for the “Gott mit uns” belt buckles and the German Iron Crosses… alone have sold more Iron Crosses to American soldiers than the Kaiser ever awarded to his subjects.”

Yes. I always do my research and post it on the Great War forum as well as in the medal section. I have my eye on a 1957 one. Also, any EK1 works (besides a WW2 cross that isn’t denazified) 1813, 1870 (am looking for any type of 1870 cross), 1914, and 1957.
