Could this Ritterkreuz be genuine?
Some guy from a nearby town is selling this and i thought i should ask you first for more details.
I looked at this photo and it seems odd to me that on the middle part of the cross, where the black paint is chipped off, the metal is still shiny, i have never seen live a knight's cross so that is the main reason why i am asking for help. I do not know exactly how to differ fake oak leaves from genuine ones.
So any help would be greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately, this is the only picture i have for now.
