Well.....after reading Mr.Wernitz book (the 1st part is outstanding and impossible to top) I found something in the 2nd part that made me kicking my own ass .A screwback Zimmermann piece(the blued core ones) with a screw and crossplate like the Meybauer pieces. A couple of years ago I had the chance to get one and thought that was some kind of modification....now I found this variation pictured in the Wernitz book....That was the sign for me to do a drink offering to the god of iron cross collecting.And then it happened-I found a thread in a German forum,followed it,found a link to a dealer I didn't know,looked at his page and found one....with the 2nd core variation but that doesn't matter.Now I know there are 2 crosses more on my endless wanted list....and beer is really helpful! Anyway-here are the pica...

My set has arrived and not only graphically it´s an awesome piece of work, but the historical context provided as introduction is a must have. Still very happy and will learn a lot from it, and from your constant input as well Micha. Overall, chapeau Herr Wernitz.

Chris, EKs rule! just don´t spread the word and we´ll keep values affordable :whistle:

I must admit i find the blued core ones better than the painted ones...

Nice piece indeed!!!

As do I but how do we know the reverse hardware actually came with the cross?

Well,the cross in Wernitz book has got the identical hardware at the reverse.That makes 2 Zimmermann crosses with thiskind of attachment system-and long time ago I had the chance to buy another one-I stepped back because I thought it was a kind of repair or home improofment....there are two more screwback variations known!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
