    Default Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse REAL OR FAKE?

    Hello everyone
    I am posting few photos of the EK 1 bought recently from "Fotobethge" German website which has mainly photos
    but also some other items too. I have doubts since this one has no markings and kinda looks thin to me.
    really can't say, I tried to see many photos of other original ones and never saw a same hook on the back, they're always different.
    I can post more detailed photos if necessary.
    It will be very helpful if someone can give a defining judging on this one. THANKS!!!

    Hi welcome,
    your in the right place.
    Alot of EK1s are unmarked you can tell its type if you have the right reference book.
    They are not thick if you have never seen on in real life you might think it's a bit small and thin i know i did the first time i seen one.

    It doesn't look bad, but ill let some of the other guys say if its original.

    Not a genuine EK1 IMO, the obverse date does not match any known original. Ask for a refund my friend.

    Regards
