This is an interesting button hole pin reading "zur erinnerung an 1870" and a Maltese or Iron Cross in the center. I have actually seen a lot of fake enamel examples of this pin but didn't know there really was such a thing. This war was a rather quick French thumping. This is a painted example and I have included obverse photos both with and without flash to show the most detail possible. Cool item very reminiscent of later Third Reich membership pins.
