All of it looks wrong to me.
I thought the fact that someone had tried to cover the swastika by going through making and soldering another shape cross to it might suggest that it could be a good one?
I no expert but I don't like this one.
The extra vertical line in the left wing is all wrong to me and the hinge
and pin have very poor quality.

I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
Circumstantial evidence and a 'fingers crossed' approach i'm afraid.
Although not an 'expert', I don't like the hinge, catch, pin, hokey shape of the reverse of the plaque and the wreath area, the vertical flaw on the left wing is just plain weird. I would expect with better photos that evidence of this being a casting would be apparant.
For me, I'd be saving my money for a safer bet.
You may wish to compare with some of my own examples to get a feel for what I'm saying...
Whoops. Forget to mention the soft detailing on your example, another red flag indicating a cast fake.
Ok thanks guys I'll steer clear
