I have an Iron Cross type Medal that I got from an elderly gentleman that has had it in excess of 50 years. I am trying to have it properly identified and find an accurate value. It is approximately 3" square and there is the Nazi SS in the Center with the year 1939 Cast into the Bottom leg of the Cross. I am near Gainesville Fl

Currently For Sale $250

I am familiar with that medal. Unfortunately, many fakes were manufactured post-war to meet the need for GIs stationed in West Germany to bring something home from the Big One. It is the EK1 which could be privately purchased by the holder instead of the gov't issue version.

Do you have a pic of the reverse side?

Felix it was evidently real I sold it for $455 to a collector in Jacksonville, Fl this past Friday I drove over and met him at the Airport! Of course I have now found others that were priced much higher however I believe I did quite well on my $15 purchase!
