Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse opinions?
As i said in the last post i went to the militairy fair.
I realy wanted an Iron Cross and i did lots of research on the internet how to spot fakes, it realy helped.
When i was at the fair i looked at every Iron Cross and i spotted lots of fake Crosses.
I stopped at a german dealer, he had lots of crosses, he came to me and wanted to promote them, he asked me: do u want to hold them, i said NO, he looked at me like what?
i said to him that it were fakes, he said come with me.
he showed lots of casings with lots of badges,medals and crosses.
he said these are 100% real because im a collector for 35 years myself.
i said i woudl realy see that Iron Cross from a closer look, he gave it to me, it was hard to tell if it was fake or not, then he took a replica and put them next to each other.
and you could realy see witch one was fake.
i bought it over from him, but im worried that it could be fake.
im 75% sure its real but i want your opinions to be sure its real.

Welcome to the forum.
Your post has been edited - this is an Iron Cross, not a Knight's Cross. The thread has also been moved to the correct forum.
p.s. Wait for others with more knowledge to confirm it but the piece looks fine to me.
