    They are good signs of an original it's true but also good signs of a fake. Fake EKs are made of multi part construction like the originals.
    I'm at work currently so can someone post pics of a '60' to compare?

    Hi Kolby and welcome to the forum. I'm not an expert in any way so don't rely on my opinion but these look weird to me.

    Thank you Kenneth, no problem at all, much appreciated.
    The '60' was the closest match I could think of off the top of my head but they aren't the same, dates and frame are very different.

    I can't think of any other original cross that Kolby's will match and the swastika is unlike any known original so I'm almost certain it is a fake cross. Will happily stand corrected if anyone can match it?

    The numbers. Maybe you are right. It could be the angle you took the picture because in the first pic you posted it doesn't look like that.

    Probably Ade, Nick and Sonny can help. Let's wait and see

    Well you guys could be right, I know they made a ton of those after the war, my buddy bought one form the same guy and he had the original paperwork but mine might be something he used to attract attention to the real one.
