Extremely rare and extremely cool 3/4 sized 1914 Iron Cross Second Class. This extremely rare and extremely high quality private purchase medal has the feel and toning of silver. The ring is hallmarked with what looks like the crest of the firm Rothe & Neffe of Vienna. With my calipers I measure the wide of the end of the cross arms at just a hair under 18mm. On the regulation EKII, shown in the images for comparison purposes only, the arms measure 24mm at the end. The ribbon, though, is actually wider at about 38mm and 7mm white stripes. The ribbon does have a spot of some kind of glue on the inside of one end that looks like it at one time kept the ends together. I consider this a non-issue and it probably could be peeled off. Terrific piece perfect for even the most advanced collection.
