    Default 1939 Eisernes Kreuz 1.Klasse.. Any Opinions?

    Hoping someone can help me with this 1939 Iron Cross First Class Medal. The mechanism that hold the medal on the uniform slips out of the hook mechanism, so that would lead me to believe it is a low quality piece, but any opinions would be great!

    Not at all good imo.

    It is even marked 24 which is a no go maker mark for an EK1

    Probably copper based, rub it on some emery and the top layer will come off

    Thank you for the input! I assumed it was fake. The vendor had multiple fake items from China, which made me question the authenticity of most of his other pieces.

    I wouldn't consider buying ANYTHING from this dealer, friend...It's one thing to have a reproduction slip through, but another to offer an entire load of fakes, in my opinion...

    I agree with you there Glenn, glad to have gotten opinions before I dared put any money on the table. As i spoke to the vendor he told me that his prices were much better than anything you could find online (and now I know why) and that the militaria dealers had really inflated the prices, so much so that he believed that the WWII items have peaked in price (which I strongly agree with). But hey, everyone is entitled to their opinion I guess.

    As already said, no chance for this one but I'll move it to the correct forum.
