Notice of special attention to the maker mark. It has been suggested that the maker mark on the ribbon ring could be "Z" for the maker ZEICH of Berlin, Germany or even the number "2" for the very respected manufacturer C.E JUNKER of Berlin. With this in mind we continued to research the various marks and carefully compared those markings in style and general characteristics and construction technique of each known examples of the Iron Cross second class of this period. It is our conclusion that the more perfect identification of the maker of this ultra fine piece is in fact as first stated the maker Nuen "ROSNER, SACHSEN and thus the maker mark of the big "N". We wish to thank all those Imperial German Iron Cross second class collectors and in some case experts for their time spent in helping verifying the correct maker of the very fine medal.. Special thanks go out to my friends and fellow collectors Carl Halder and James Burroughs/Green and of course "D.N." for all the help in our "quest for perfection". Good luck to all who take an interest in this Iron Cross and the other items in this auction. Sincerely, Sam note: NO RESERVE has been set on this great grouping.
