Very nice 1914 Iron Sross 2nd class. Ring is hallmarked M . Condition of the medal is top notch and just where collectors like to see it; Very clean, undamaged and smooth but just enough very gentle aging where it is obviously real and with some personality. Nice, crisp black core and nicely toned silver frame. Original ribbon nicely folded. These have long been undervalued and are becoming a hot item with the hundredth anniversary of WWI. Top notch example of a classic medal.
