A different Iron Cross conversion

Recommended Posts

Or at least I think so.
I’ve seen plenty of 2nd class crosses that have been converted to 1st class by the addition of a needle to the reverse but after owning this for at least 13 years I’ve just realised it’s a 1st class core with a 2nd class silver frame. Yes ok, I should have seen that at once but I bought it, put it away and have only just looked at it again.
It seems to be a lot of effort to go to and I wonder how the whole backplate and needle went missing in the first place. So, have the cross collectors out there seen this type of conversion before?
