Here is my Iron Cross. Can anyone give me some more information to distinguish if it is an..
Iron Cross 2nd Class, Iron Cross 1st Class or Grand Cross of the Iron Cross

Mystery Solved

    This is WWI, 2nd class. If you get a magnifying glass, if needed, & look on the ring, you should find markings that will tell you who the maker was. Does a magnet stick to it as there was a reason for them being called "iron" crosses & almost all have an iron core with very few real exceptions

    Thanks blunderbuss. A magnet does stick to it. I added another picture of the ring. I can't see it well enough to tell what the markings are.

    All second class versions were made to be suspended from a ribbon. The first classes are pin backs.
