Default Iron cross 1813 "bent stem"

Hello again!
This little precious recently found it´s way into my collection:
An Iron Cross 1813 with the "bent stem" core and an old ribbon (38 mm wide)...
The cross measures 41 mm each way, weighs about 14 gr and is probably one of the earlier specimens of this type, because the "all around"making is not too crafty (frame is not exactly fitting, soldering lacks precision, open suspension ring => see pictures)
But I like it.
As always: Opinions welcome...
Regards
Hagrid

A gap in the solder.
The frames are fitted perfectly on other spots - it seems like they were differently shaped or sized, maybe due to sloppy stamping...
