    Mate if you have to ask then you need to buy some books and doing some study before you start buying medals and wasting your money !!

    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

    Clearly lacks any kind of semblance to period detail. Just look at the beading to start with, it is nowhere near defined enough. Do a search here on the forum, and you will find plenty of fine original examples to compare.

    Because it is completely wrong. The pin on the back is especially screaming it out. Look at originals on the forums and compare.

    HI, sorry but its a bad fake. To start with there is a lack of detail on the front especially on the beading and the swastika. In addition the black looks like poor applied paint and the back has a tin foil look to it. Also i do not think that this type of pin and catch setups was used on original iron cross 1st classes.
    Thanks, Glen.

    Huh????

    Jeez! At least have the courtesy to go about asking politely.

    As a new member here you are welcome to join in the discussions and post things for opinions but there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it. This sounds like a very rude demand. Why don't you tell us what you think as opposed to throwing out a demand and expecting others to do the work for you?
