    Okay, I see it, from here and the linked thread. Rounded inner corners. I doubt I'll ever be able to afford one of these, but I learned something new. I take it original examples will always, without question, have sharp corners instead (i.e. there were no makers that bucked the rule and had slightly rounded corners)?

    Not being pedantic at all, Danny. When a casual question comes in concerning a one-look fake, it doesn’t generally call for an in-depth analysis of the minutiae details,is all. In the case of this particular cross? Lipstick on a pig is still a pig...

    The only thing stupid about it would have been shelling out 10 Grand without even questioning it at all!

    Not entirely correct unfortunately, As far as I remember, Juncker RK's commonly had the inner corners slightly rounded off in order to fit the swastika comfortably. This was more apparent on certain crosses. When the 'original' Rounder appeared, period photos of RK recipients (wearing probably rounded Juncker crosses) were used in 'discussions' as evidence of these (Rounders) being actual wartime crosses.
