War Iron Cross statistics!

I've been thinking about doing this for a while and thought it was time to go from thought to action Have any of you ever wondered how many iron crosses do we own combined? Well, i have and i think it would be intresting to find out how many iron crosses do we have out the total awarded number. It would be nice to gather some statistics, no? Well, those who agree and have the time and energy to count their iron crosses, can post their numbers here after my example, ok? Thank you for your time

Blitz you have peaked my curiosity! I think that everyone has at least one EK of some kind. I would like to know how many members don't have one.
