    Default Is this Iron cross good ?

    Hello !
    I just got myself this iron cross (hope that is what it is suppose to be call) and after searching in the 33 pages in this section i am not sure anymore if it's a good one ?
    And if it's a good one should the swastika should have been black like the 1939 ? And how much those are worth for ?
    there is no marking that i can see .

    Thanks

    Hi Frenchy, sorry this one is bad.

    The detailing to the rim is really bad and the overall quality is poor. Look at the dates etc. The frame looks oversized too.

    The swastika should be painted black like the rest of the iron core: but on many originals the paint can get worn off.

    Average price in the UK is now around 70.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Frenchy,
    Sorry to say, everything Adrian has said is absolutely correct...
    That is a really bad fake.
