    Ehhh yeah I'm not thinking this is good. It looks one piece,among other problems, like the beading and numbers. I don't like it but wait for others to chime in.

    Both ribbon and cross are very poor fakes. I suggest you get your money back asap and next time you see a RK for $150 remember that originals will be priced between $7000 - $9000.

    Swastika and date looks almost melted and not sharp at all.
    Too bad.
    At least you did not get taked for the price of a genuine RK as quoted above.

    The ribbon ring appears to be a paper clip ! ?

    Sorry, Richtofen. It is worth about $20-$25 as a 'replica'. The guy preyed on you
    by feeding you a line, and you fell for it. I'd say that was pretty rotten.........!

    You could have purchased an original Iron Cross Second Class for under $150.
