Clasp to the Iron Cross 2. Class 1914
DATE OF INSTITUTION
1. September 1939 as the lowest grade of the re-instituted Order of the Iron Cross for awardees of the Iron Cross 2. Class 1914
The Iron Cross was awarded for particular bravery in the face of the enemy and for outstanding merit in troop leadership. The awarding of a higher grade required the previous awarding of the lower grade. Divisional commanders were authorized to award the Clasp for the Iron Cross 2. Class1914 and stocks were kept at divisional level.
The Clasp to the Iron Cross 2. Class 1914 was produced by at least 22 manufacturers, not including variations amongst the individual companies. The clasps can be found either unmarked or with LDO numbers.
Accurate numbers are not known but the closest estimation is 40,000 and most likely around 120,000 manufactured.
The division issued the award document in the format A5 in the name of the Führer and Supreme Commander of the Wehrmacht (after mid-1943 only in the name of the Führer) and was signed by the divisional commander.
The clasp was worn in the second buttonhole on the ribbon of the Iron Cross 2. Class of 1914.
