    Did you get asked for at least $20000 for it?

    That's what it would be if original as that is a Knights cross with Oak Leaves and swords in the centre

    It looks like a repro tribute to Wittmann from the pics

    Just based on what's in it I have serious doubts. I wouldn't mind seeing more photos just to satisfy my curiosity. If it were all genuine you would need a home equity loan to afford it, or at least I would.

    Oak leaves and Swords, no less....

    The seller is talking from his backside.

    This is a common lot found on ebay and similar and is made up of completely fake items. As mentioned, if real, the value would be many many thousands of $//.

    You can find these cases of awards attributed to just about every TR personality imaginable. All fakes.

    Please keep well clear and don't spend any money without posting potential purchases here first. There are many people out there waiting to take your money in exchange for garbage.

    That's a good decision. The price says it all. Not even the Iron Cross Second Class would normally be so cheap. I am quite sure that you will soon find something more interesting and will be glad that you still have your $50.

    Amazing the lies some people will come up with to make a buck. Mind you, maybe his Granpa was a fan of Wittmans?

    Actually, you see these things quite often on eBay. Some sort of admiration thing, I guess...
