    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.

    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.
