Sorry for the photos being all over the place, but if you hold your mouse cursor over the photos you can see that the photos are named either B or L to differentiate between the two crosses. Thank you.
Hi Volv, I believe those marks and pins are fake, lets see what the boys say
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
Thanks Stickgrenade, besides the pins anything else? Any comments would be appreciated!
They are, in my opinion, all reproductions. Not seen such manufacturer's stamps on Iron Crosses in 1st Class.
I 'm sorry, no chance, unfortunately they all are fakes ..
Is there anything besides the numbering that give these away as fakes?
Thank you again to everyone that replied! I think that settles it, I will take these back to the shop where I bought them from. This was a good learning experience! :-)
Even though i'm not an expert, i must say that i have never seen such markings before either.
A friendly advice: post pictures here to get feedback from members before buying. This way you will save the hustle of returning, refund mpla mpla
