    It's a reproduction judging by the pin, hinge, clasp configuration, on the reverse, and the "1939" on the obverse. These features do not appear similar to any period manufactured Iron Cross in 1st Class of which I am aware.

    I agree. I don't like the rim and the cross-hatching either.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks all! As I thought then.... Even that the seller "guarantee the originality" you canīt trust them....
    Once again. Thank you!

    I can only agree. For me the pin's the first red flag. Stewy S

    Thank you all for your good answers! Lucky me that didnīt buy it then.
    Itīs a bloody jungle with the ek1īs on the market. Many ek1īs are sold as originals with guarantee but they are still fake....
    Thank you all once again!
