Riddle of a cache with 170 iron crosses from Romania
Not so long ago, during a regular raid on the treasures of German soldiers in the Romanian mountains, a squad called “Romanian Military Archeology – RMA” stumbled upon one find from which everyone received an adrenaline rush.
All iron crosses were in one place, under the roots of a large tree at a depth of about 60 centimeters.
“We are tempted to say that this kind of discovery and situation itself, it’s once in a lifetime opportunity; especially here in Romania, where we don’t have a “Stalingrad” context with tons and tons of relics.”
Total found :
- 180 EK2 German Iron crosses
- 100 German war merit crosses among other stuff
- Flak badges
- identification tags
Information from Wikipedia: “The Iron Cross that was awarded during World War II has a swastika in the center. The Iron Cross was normally a military decoration only, though there were instances of it being awarded to civilians for performing military functions.”
