Article about: What the H is it Made of? White Metal or some cheap grade of Aluminum? Definitely a one-looker fake. One for the Rubbish Bin...

    Default 1914 EK1 with 1939 Spange FAKE

    Greetings gentlemen,
    I am new to WR and I apologize for starting my first topic with a question but I just need a confirmation from the forum experts that this cross is a fake.
    A certain seller is offering it as 100% authentic piece. I gave him a friendly warning that it is a fake but that didn't change his mind, on the contrary he started convincing me how it was checked by some expert who confirmed it to be original.
    Anyway here are couple of pictures, unfortunately none of the back side...

    Welcome to the forum.

    I can confirm that the piece you show is a fake. It is a poorly made one piece EK and made from what looks like a very poor quality metal. The seam lines around the entire circumference are a giveaway to it being fake too. The fact the seller doesn't appear to want anyone to see the reverse means he obviously knows it is wrong and doesn't want anyone to see the back. Have you asked for any more pictures?

    The ribbon is also fake. The construction is completely different from wartime ribbons.

    Always good to see images of fakes for reference which might prevent other people from making a mistake.

    Thank you all for responding so quickly!
    Like I said he didn't show the back side, which was, like Adrian said, very indicative. I am an amateur when it comes to Third Reich decorations but it was an obvious fake even to me!
    I contacted the seller yesterday, couple of hours after that the order was "reserved" and today it became "sold" so I didn't had the chance to ask for more pictures.
    Once again many thanks!

    The cross is known as the pumpkin crown fake and is
    all over ebay right now. It is found with all sorts of
    different hardward and with different makers marks.

    With that screw back it looks like it is straight from Poland.
