    I wouldn't touch it with a flag pole. The whole cross looks like a terrible fake IMHO, the swastika looks way too big and if you look in this picture, it looks like somebody has done a lot of scratching, probably to "age it". http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/milita...705_165716.jpg

    Sorry, if I owned one, I would be the luckiest guy in town, hehe. You could always try google, here is at least one: 4/935 Ritterkreuz with Original Frosting | Knights Cross.org

    Can I ask where it is being offered?
    Best Regards

    Actually the Swastika on the example @ Knightscross.org is even larger, it touches the reeded points...
    The one I submitted is for sale but I have not purchased it yet, that's why I'm here! Seems the general consensus is fake, but in the future I will submit some others that I own. This has been a lot of enjoyment! Thank You!

    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
