Original WWI 1914 Non-Combatant Iron Cross 2nd Class Medal Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History. 1914 pattern, die struck, three piece, iron and alloy construction Pattée style cross with a single piece iron core and two piece silver alloy frame. The obverse of the cross features an embossed, central, “W” cypher for King Wilhelm II, re-institution date, “1914”, to the bottom arm and a King’s crown to the top arm. The reverse of the cross features an embossed, central, oak-leaf cluster, with the “FW” cypher for King Friedrich Wilhelm III, a King’s crown to the top arm and the original institution date, “1813”, to the bottom arm. All the emblems are in nice high relief. The ribbon suspension loop and ring are both intact. The cross comes complete with a piece of original ribbed rayon ribbon. This pattern, which is the negative image of that usually found on these 1914 medals, distinguishes it as for a non-combatant. In good condition with minor storage wear to the medal, some paint loss.
