    Exclamation EKII 1939 with document!!!! Opinions needed

    Hello as always before buying something i want to ask the experts of the forum about the authenticity of this iron cross and mostly it's document. Here is the link: WWII. Iron Cross + Doc. of concession. 170 Infantry Div - eBay (item 160514095762 end time Dec-12-10 02:44:27 PST)

    I have made my research the commander at that time was Siegfried Hass. That is supposed to be his signature.

    There are Many Good dealers online and a few threads on WRF recommending some. I would only Buy combat awards with larger paper grouping, There more likely to belong together. I'm sure you can imagine some people put these together to try and raise there Value. Hence I only collect the Paper items which carry more History with them.

    That is way to much for a EK2 and a document!!
    I gave 130€ for my last one.
    A document with the date, 1 of may, 1945 and issued in Denmark.
    So in the very last days of the war. The cross was a marked W&L in very good condition.
    I think it's way to expensive for this set.

    Agree that is a hefty price for an EK II and document . I haven't seen an original of the signature of Hass so cannot comment on that , i would like to see a close up photo of the stamp on this document especially for that price !
