    That second iron cross isn't a Nazi era item. Hell, it predates the formation of Germany.

    wait, does the front of the iron cross say "1959"

    I thought the last year the iron cross was given was 1945?

    actually, yah, that seems REALLY suspicious to me. I don't know jack shit about the iron cross, but I thought all of the dates were 1945 and earlier.


    And yah, if 1813 was when the first Iron Cross was awarded, it makes sense to have it on the back.

    I have a whole box of little stuff that my grandpa brought back. I posted the pics a long time ago. I'll see if I can find them later today.
    My sister wears an aquamarine ring he got off a Nazi, too.
