    This surfaced recently in a very nice photo album from a member on board an auxiliary cruiser. It shows the board mechanic making Iron crosses awarded while being on sea. Does anybody have items like this in their collection?

    I wonder if any of these crosses are currently in the hands of collectors who think that they are fake.

    What about the post WW2 version…. Who can tell me some details of the 1957 version.

    Almost all orders were re-issued in 1957 in mostly the same design as their originals, awarded from 1934-45. The only difference in most cases was the lack of the swastika.There is an example of the 1957 Iron Cross in the OMSA database.
