    It is a Iron Cross 1939 BUT it is a fake. Despite the bad quality images this is most likely a one piece fake.

    Not even the correct ribbon.

    As Jonas states it's a bad fake on a KVK ribbon

    im no expert on these as i only own one EK 11 ,but can i ask what makes it a fake ,is it the encroachment of the blackening of the iron core onto the frame that makes this a one looker one piece or is it possible somebody touched up the black very badly onto a 3 piece ,just curious is all, thanks james

    Very good point - even I ( certainly no expert ) took one look at this 'medal' and thought - 'All wrong !'. But for the less-experienced collector, I think threads such as these are very useful to clearly warn against what is for sale out there.......
