Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse real ?
The feathered EK1 has a non magnetic center, that I believe is brass, there is a tiny area of paint missing exposing a yellow colored metal but is to small to see in picture. The cross is 3 piece construction. I would appreciate any info that can be provided about this cross. Best regards John.

Hi John, looks fine to me.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
Looks like a Souval but closer pics are needed

Certainly a Souval, looks OK IMO
Have posted additional pic, s, with more detail. The last pic at 7 o, clock shows tiny area where black finish missing, exposing brass base metal. It is however very difficult to see. I did some research on the Souval crosses, could this one be post war? Thanks so much to all, for your time & extensive knowledge the forum is a above average site. Best Regards John
