Eric Stahlhut, April 4, 2009 in Germany: All Eras: The Iron Cross
reinforced catch. a similar cross can be viewed on page 191 of 'the iron time'
view of prongs and catch
Interesting cross. I would guess that the repair to the catch was not made at the time the horizontal hooks were attached otherwise I think the catch would not be on a base plate.
All the best
here is an image of the mark on the underside of pin. it was difficult to accurately capture, but the mark looks like a crescent moon
Nice cross Eric. Is this one off ebay? I seam to remember getting sniped on one like this not
to long ago. :unsure:
oh yeah, sorry bout that!
analog stopwatch to boot :rolleyes:
All is fair in love and war------------and ebay
That's a nice one(and a rare bird,too).here's mine-not in best condition but as long I can't find a better one it stays here in my collection.It has also a marking at the backside of the pin.Just a simple "C" or a half circle. The pin is stamped with "800". I've got also an Oldenbrg FA 1st class in my collection with a similar attachment system(but the 2 sidehooks are not horizontal).Maybe they are later added,it#s really hard to tell.
