    Both are post-war production of the firm Rudolf Souval in Vienna.

    What does post-war mean? (apart from the obvious) replicas?

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    Even though the Knights Cross is a fake, these examples do have a tiny bit of collector interest as they are half decent copies. Some people will buy them as "fillers" for displays.

    Cheers, Ade.
