    First, I would like to thank all of you for helping me in my quest!
    I need another opinion, is this Iron Cross original or not?

    i don't know if the source of the 3 items you have posted so far is the same, but if so, you may want to consider a "safer" place to hunt. as you know, collecting is risky business and 3 out of 3 that are not good is a big red flag.

    there are plenty of sources for good militaria out there. in the classifieds of this very forum are several good examples of the EK2. Woolgar, who has posted here, has several up for grabs.

    The source is not the same, they are all different sellers. I live in Serbia and i don't have an option to buy somewhere else. We don't even have paypal
    Thanks again, one more cross coming soon

    I hope you find a good one soon. Until then, keep posting any potential purchases before you buy so you don't waste your money.

    Mango, the biggest red flag to me was the black paint on the silver. If it were a true three piece there would not be any paint on the silver.

    Ray, this is not a sign of a fake. It can happen
