Hello to everyone,

I am not sure if this pin-back was officially issued.  Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thank you in advance

Dean

bryansk1959 and Andreas,

After looking closer at the pictures both of you provided, I can now see that the cross I bought has some serious flaws. I can now put it in the fake drawer.

Thank you

Dean

I´ve seen this topic too late.

Singnalcorps45´s shown cross is unfortunately a known fake, from time to time sold on Ebay.

Only C.F. Zimmermann produced the awarded crosses, therefore all crosses are looking the same.

Attached you will find pics of my both crosses. Both are 100 % original, one is coming directly from private.

Regards

Roman

P.S. Thanks for liking my webpage :-)

Roman,

Thank you for the information.  I took a chance on this.  I clearly see now that the Cross I purchased was is fake.  I am now better informed.  The Cross I bought will be destroyed, so it will never be on the market again.

By the way, I have a picture of a 3rd original one, which I sold some time ago (because on the above shown ones I have the names who got it and the sold one was nameless).

This looks to me of the same manufacturer and period. Looks to have a repair the the ping on the hing.

I´ve just seen this cross at Bretzendorfer on yesterday, too.

Looks like a good one (officially awarded during 1914-1918)  from Zimmermann and as you said with a repaired needle-system.
The price is acceptable.

Regards
Roman

Good luck....from time to time a nice one (original awarded and not the usual ebay-crap) is offered.

But the difficult part regarding this unique crosses is to find an original award document :-)

I only have two...plus this blank one...

Although some may get a heart-attack (like I almost got, when I saw this one), I will show you a really rare bird, just landed on my desk:

It´s a war-merit cross for heroic deeds....but something seems to be wrong :o

A closer look shows the entire desaster....Zimmermann printed a 800 on the needle !!!!!

To become serious, this cross is a ultra-rare bird. Between 1916-1918 Zimmermann produced a few crosses in Silver gilden (with 800), mostly awarded by high ranked officers, Princes or politicians (like Ludendorff or Bismarck).
These crosses are 2 gramm heavier than the usual ones.
Although I don´t know the exact number, I guess there were not more than 40 crosses in Silver gilden.
And to complete the desaster...this special cross comes in a ultra-rare box with printing on it.
Beside this box, I only know so far one other box .

Greets

Roman
