    hi guys ive been looking at this cross its been confirmed as a real war time Knight's Cross by Klein and Quenzer, marked 800 on the KC and 800 65 on the loop.

    I can't comment on authenticity but I can say WOOOOW... The only thing missing is the battle hardened veteran of the eastern front wearing it!!! It looks fantastic!!

    Germany is within the EU, so no customs charges.

    USA and Canada you will get charged. Customs fees are a bummer, but on a high ticket item like this it is something you are going to have to suffer. If you fudge on the declared value and it goes missing you will only be able to claim the declared value and you will take a massive loss.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, as discussed on WAF a good K&Q. It originally came from Berliner Auktionshaus where it was sold for 6000 I think.

    yeah so EU is fine,
    yeah it was discussed on WAF, and he did get it from there
    he said auction fee plus 15% buyer's premium of about 900 euro + 300 euro for shipping insurance + about $750 Canadian (about 525 euro) in duty fees
    he says it cost him $8,500 about (5,500) that what he wants back just wondering if its worth that?
    but thinking now i would get hit with the import and shipping fees so its not

    is Berliner Auktionshaus safe to buy from? do they check for fakes

    Thanks Ade and Nick

    If it is very expencive, then travel to canada and get it. Enjoy a vacation see some wonderful nature and bring your vacation memory with you.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Yes you could make a trip over here. The weather is fine now. No need for snow shoes or the likes.

    It's better to stay away from there, if you don't know what to look for. Occasionally they try to auction fake RKs for thousands of .

    Don't rush this, just make sure you've got the balance on your account. When the time comes you can purchase that nice Juncker you wanted at a good price.
