    Seen this for sale and I like it but I've no idea what to check regarding authenticity.
    It's had an EK style cross soldered over the Swastika but I'm sure I can rectify that.
    Just wanna hear some opinions as to whether it's good?

    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.

    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.

    Also, please post in the correct forum next time.
