    I paid 70 dollars for this at a flee market, I know there are tons of fakes out there but I got lucky with this one.

    I am lucky to live over here, I go to one by my house every month and they have tons of neat stuff. I bought a copy of Mein Kampf a couple of months ago but I sold it it sort of creeped me out lol

    I would like to see some better pics if possible. Close ups of the front and back showing the details of the frame and dates please?
    At first glance I'm not convinced it's good looking at the fat swastika. The central arms are out of proportion to the outer arms.

    I would like to see better pics also.
    I have a little doubt about the cross.
    The swastika and date looks a bit strange..

    I'm not an expert, but I also think that a year seems strange...

    As already said, horrible swastika not only fat but somewhat asymmetrical. The lower portion of the date looks especially bad if my eyes don't deceive me.

    Here you go guys, It passes all of the test's I have read. The middle is free moving and the middle is also magnetic. I stuck a piece of paper in between the 2 pieces. I know this doesn't make it 100% real but these are some good signs.
