The iron ring often contains a tiny, stamped number or L/-- marking which indicates the manufacturer.

Theres the link.
However, would it make sense to have two different dates on it. 1813 and 1814 (or 1914)

Is that a ww2 cross, or from another era?

I recently acquired a Militaria Item - an Iron Cross reportedly from WWI. I'll get pictures of it up here real soon. ITs about an inch/inch and a half big. On the top segment of the cross it has a crown, with FW under it. With a 3 leaf plant or something with what look like acorns underneath the center part where the 3 leaves join. Below that is the numbers: 1813. On the other side (not sure which is front) is the same crown, with a big W in the middle. On the bottom are 4 more numbers: 1914 or 1814...the '8-9' is a little distorted due to rust/dirt/damage. Theres a metallic ring on the top of it, and looking very closely at it, you can see a KO inscribed on it. Will try my best to get some dcent pictures with a digital camera.
K.O. is the King's maker for this award. I have a few marked the same.
