Looks like a poor one piece copy to me.

I don't like it either.
Indeed looks like a one piece cross.
Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
As stated above, it is not even close to a Juncker cross.
Surely there would be cross hatching if it were a Juncker

This is a fake because it bears no features that match a known and accepted wartime Juncker RitterKreuz.

Jolly good, thanks to all. What shall i do with it. I could bury it in the garden and cause consternation in the future, as i live on an old RAF base.

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
