I'm not sure what goes wrong for you. I just tried it again and it does the job fine for me. I'm using OS X 10.10.5 (Yosemite) with default "find" and "iconv" commands by Apple.

Example Terminal "session" for reference: https://pastebin.com/BpSRGpCM
(empty lines added between the commands for readability)

Perhaps someone else can provide a smarter solution or a ready-to-use script for the purpose. It's just that for me "find" with "-exec[dir]" is the first thing that comes to mind in regards to batch processing of files. The same goes for "iconv" and charset conversion. :-)  

Sorry, that I can't be of more help.
