    the computer that I have is a stinking lap top that will not let me post photos of objects. sorry I should have made this aware in my posting of my question. I apologize. I hope some one can still help me with my query?

    If it has a rounded 3 in the date and is marked 17, then it is a fake or a post-war mash-up. All rounded 3 iron crosses were unmarked. Here is my 2nd class as an example.

    It is thought by some that Deschler made them, all, late war.
