WW1 Imperial Boxed Iron Cross 2nd Class.

Very nice example iron cross with original ribbon and medal bar version added to the ribbon. The medal is in very good condition with over 95% of its original black paint to the iron center, frame again in sound condition, ribbon has some storage wear. The inside of the box is in very nice condition, some staining to the inside top. Now we come to the box itself, it has at some point been covered with a black waterproof type material, not a bad job but its a re-cover, this covering does appear to have age, perhaps it could be removed but i was not going to have a go myself as it looks just fine.
