Propaganda IC 2nd class 1914 ?!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

this little (ugly) fellow came along with two British stars and I´m wondering if it is a propaganda IC or one of the crosses, you could buy in UK for money during WW1?

The cross is unmagnetic, quite heavy (17,6 grams), smaller than the original equivalent and crooked / non-symetric.
The core is black painted.

Can anybody help me with some additional information or maybe pictures of a similar cross?
I´m pretty sure, that it is quite old, not a modern fake.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, usually the Allied made ones some sort of reference to german war crimes, or cities destroyed... I think this may be biker?

I know the usual iron propaganda crosses "For Kaiser", "For Kultur" etc....it might be a biker´s cross or decoration,
but it is at least 35 years old.

IMO for a biker´s cross it is too ugly...a quite strange piece.

just a mention, in 1984 I was in London with my parents and went into a Rock/punk/fashion shop... in amongst the leather jackets and belts with studs were plastic bins filled with badges in a similar quality to this... I was a new collector and was happy to get a panzer assault, Iron Cross, Armshield, general assault etc. etc..... I knew nothing about german badges, just assumed they were original... they were all badly cast with painted details... the pictured one is not one of them, but is in a similar direction.

I won´t exclude this at all.

This cross came along with a mixture of other badges / awards (see picture below) from a private person for small money.

Already the mixture of two British awards from WW1 and WW2 with a badge of a German veteran´s meeting from 1936
was quite unusual and the seller had no idea from where these medals / crosses were coming except that these ones were coming from her grandmother 35 years ago.
