The truly very attractive piece - which was surely issued but that was I deem never worn nor even mounted! - came together with its pre-folded and/or never confectioned (and approx. 29 cms. long-sized-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt'). The cross - which shows a clear makers'-designation: '4' stamped into its ring (as can be seen on the pictures) - was with certainty never cleaned and has a very nice and/or truly attractive age-patina: it retains most (ie. all!) of its so-called: 'hochpolierte Kanten' (or: polished sides) and is truly void of any darkened tarnish or alike: the cross is simply very nicely preserved (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross has a nicely preserved, black-finished (ie. somewhat 'matted'-) core. The piece is just a tiny bit dusty and/or stained but was never cleaned nor polished. The cross is an evident specimen that was produced by the maker: 'Steinhauer & Lück' as based in the town of Lüdenscheid (ie. 'Hersteller 4'): it has very nice and/or pronounced detail as to be expected for a cross by this desirable maker. The IC was recently found at a German private-household and was never before in collectors'-hands. Simply a great, maker-marked 'EK II. Klasse' that will be impossible to be upgraded!
