Default Iron Crosses

I've been narrowing the collection lately and have finally gotten around to grouping my crosses together. Still missing an 1813 EK1. So sad.....

As far as I can remember, our friend from down under is the only one of our group
to own an authentic 1813 Ek1

Nice collection Don

When I bought my 1813 2nd class, I could have bought the first class also.
Both came from the same recipient's family. It was a same that they split
the set but their was no way I could have afforded both the 1st and 2nd class
crosses.

I love the Imperial series of the EK. An original 1813 EK1 its a dream. Nonetheless having a Wagner 1870 EK1 its a privilege. Congratz

Don, lovely collection!
One question, the small silver Cross on a pin, do you have any more info on it? I have one similar and was told it was military but I assumed it was not as I could find nothing about it.
