    Sorry, it's a really bad fake.
    These are one piece copies of a really bad 3 piece copy!
    Available on some repro sites for approx. $30.

    Regards - Danny

    EDIT: I was too generous with my guess at the price...
    Here's the cross for the princely sum of $17!!

    Oh boy! They really don't get much worse than this.
    I don't know where to start except to say that if you were to compare this one to some of the originals shown on this forum you will immediately see why it is such a bad fake. Compare the inner corners for a start, competely different from any original.

    Danny is correct in his statement: "A one piece copy of a really bad three piece copy." That pretty much sums it up!

    IOffer is not the place to collect genuine Third Reich militaria of this type.

    Indeed. Stay away from that auction site if you're a serious collector
    or student of militaria. More fakes there than any other.........

    One can only echo the comments of my esteemed colleagues...if you venture into the murky depths of iOffer, then truly place yourself at the wolf's door. It is not a place to be treaded lightly...

    If you want to buy original, you won't find it on iOffer. Please please please stay away from there or you will end up out of pocket.
    If you want a genuine RK, with or without oaks or swords you will have to pay many thousand to secure one. You will not find one on iOffer.
    I would also suggest a bit more research first..........

    Dear, oh dear, what a dreadful fake. Its lamentable what people think they can get away with.
    Richtofen, with respect you need to educate yourself a bit more on the subject before you walk through the i offer circus
