    Today I bought my first WW2 german militaria, 2 x 1st class iron crosses (cost me about $428 for both). Im not an expert so would appreciate your opinion on these photos.. The dealer told me that he does returns if the items are fake.

    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

    They are, in my opinion, all reproductions. Not seen such manufacturer's stamps on Iron Crosses in 1st Class.

    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

    In front side, date don't match with no one else used by the contemporary factories of EKIs, also the anchor hinge and the pin.
    The rest (frame and catch) is similar with some known original crosses.
