    I am far away to be a knight cross collector,but i am pretty sure that it is a fake.

    i would tend to agree, quality is lacking on the RK.

    Before thinking of buying a RK it is best to study them , then the answer would be there immediately it is a fake i'm afraid.
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    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

    Thank you gentlemen, greatly appreciated. I haven't seen it myself; my friend sent me the pics and I was suspicious, but don't know enough about it. Again; if it seems to be too good...

    Is the date on the reverse being so off center something you would see on an original? I would guess not with such a high end award, but not impossible I suppose.

    Off centre dates don't mean fake. The core is a separate piece and can move around within the frame, some more so than others, so it will not always be centred. This applies to any EK that is not a one piece.
