    Sorry this one is bad. Wrong material and poor detail.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I completely agree with Ade, this is a fake cross for the reasons he mentions.

    Its possible that is repainted? Its looks that way.

    Even if it was repainted, its still a bad one. The shape, material, details, the finish; the whole concept is just wrong.

    Unfortunately, it is not an original example. Whether repainted or not, this piece clearly lacks the period detail that should be present on original Ritterkreuzen.
