A massive 1914 Iron Cross which had the dates of "1813" and "1870" added to the horizontal arms of the cross. The cross itself is approximately 4 1/8 by 4 1/8 inches in size and weighs 1.2 pounds. The back side is blank, with two small holes, presumably to allow mounting of the cross onto a plaque or other surface. It is contained within a cardboard box that bears a facsimile of the 1914 Iron Cross on the lid. The box has multiple repairs and reinforcements with cellophane tape, and a descriptive label is taped to the bottom.
