    Default Eisernes Kreuz 1st Klasse – Real or Fake?

    Hi,
    I would like to get your opinion on this EK1 which I might buy. These are the only pictures I have, but I hope they still can be of some help. The pin is marked with “4”. The overall description is that the cross and case is in a very good condition.

    Is it real or fake?
    If real, what should a market price be?

    Thanks for the help
    Jonas

    Looks like a nice S&L.

    I would agree with that even though the pics are shocking! Is this pin type one of the rarer variants for S&L?

    I have to agree with Adrian, I don't remember an S&L with this pin type.. but as far cross could be original, general look is not bad, naturally I would like to see the cross better.
    Case is ok, it 's a well known contemporary type.

    Hi,

    Here are some new pictures, I hope they will help.

    The person that sell this cross inherited it from her uncle. Apperently he purchased this cross 1947 from a private person in Sweden. If this 1947 is true, I have no doubt she tells the truth, how common was there at that time to have replica crosses?

    Thanks
    Jonas

    The obverse looks good but the reverse is completely throwing me. Could be a cross made with some wartime and postwar parts???
