    From these pics it looks like a 'rounder', so called because the inner corners of the beading nearest the swastika are very rounded, so in answer to you question - no.
    As well as that the ribbon (excluding the narrow ties) is made from two types, one of which is a modern repro.
    Would be useful to see some straight on pics though.

    First impression - Bad !

    But the asking price from whoever is selling it may also say a lot...............

    Originals are $8000.00 and upwards, over here.

    I'd like to get a really 'good quality' repro KC with Oakleaves and Swords like this,
    but I do not want to spend any more than $200.
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Steve,
    As a suggestion, have you thought about getting an early 1957 Ritterkreuz? They cost a little more than $200 but shopping around you can find them at reasonable prices. Then you will have a genuine version of the RK rather than a repro.
    There are two commonly found types from S&L, an 'A' and a 'B', the difference is in the cores. The 'B' type is more common and better priced than the 'A'.

    Wolfspear, theres one one on E Bay at the moment:- 'Orden-mit-Band-Ritterkreuz-1939-57er-Silber-800er-/310222595015', Adrian I think he will need a lot more than $200 ! mind you this looks like a nice early 57' RK.

    That cross is a beautiful 'A' type! Very very nice! I can see that one topping four figures when it ends!
    They're still about at much less though, my collecting budget seems to always be on the low side when they come up for sale though.
    As an example of prices, I know of an 'A' type going for 650 (now on hold) and two 'B' types going for 155 and 295 respectively on a German dealers site.

    Nick, I'll get round to it this weekend.
