Iron Cross - an obvious fake?

Article about: A straight on shot would probably help. That 'mark' on the ring looks like the join in the ring to me.

    Default Iron Cross - an obvious fake?

    Hi,

    I go this Iron Cross in Prague a couple of years ago.

    Obvious fake? Was I retarded?

    My shots are slightly angled because I wanted to show you the finish on the the sides of the cross. It seems really crappy to me. Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    It is original.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Wow! I'm very surprised. The amount of black paint that seems to have leaked on the sides made me think it was fake. AFTER I bought it, of course...
    Thanks again.

    This isn't just original, it's a really nice original!

    Is it maker marked?

    Wow, you guys are giving me hope now.

    I don't think I can see a maker marking on it. I checked the ring and there is something on it. But I can't tell if it's a marking or some kind of dent...

    Do you have a macro function on your camera?

    Yeah, and that was it. I have a small compact camera. The macro function is ok for a small camera, but it's as good as I can get this. Maybe I'll try with a different light later on. I'm having a hard time capturing what is going on on that ring without some kind of reflection messing things up.

    Someone around here will probably be able to help you better than I can. There are some folks on here who can look at an unmarked example and tell you exactly who made it. It's pretty cool that they can do that, but unfortuantely I haven't gotten to that point yet. haha
