Any ideas on what it could be?

I did find this Iron Cross in the box of my Grandfather's and Great Grandfather's Medals. On another site I was told it did not belong together. They were the only two items - Cross with no ribbon and ribbon with no medal.  Possible?

It is not possible.  It looks like this:

Never mind the fact that there is no such medal ribbon, the ribbon is narrower than it should be so it would be difficult to make standard trifolded ribbon. 

I think somebody played with German  patriotika ribbon.

Do you think it went with this? It was in the box also.

Yes, I think it is definitely integral part of some German patriotic insignia. Perhaps from this one.

It is one of many Veteran's organisations insignia. A whole collecting sphere on its own

:) if its a vet organizations you'll need to find an expert here that could help. Maybe post in the German section of the forum that deals with this.

It looked like someone folded the Irons Cross ribbon to me, but lots of things carry these colors :)
