This is a consignment item. It is a privately-purchased 1870 Iron Cross. The cross is flat (non vaulted). The paint is very clean and in fine condition, overall. It rates about 97%. The frame has an extra fine patina on it, and has not been cleaned in decades. The reverse features a mirrored finish and a swollen pin. It displays no hallmarks for either the manufacturer or its silver content. It is most likely a later example from approximately 1885 through 1905.
