    Default ww2 german spange

    hi guys,
    i have here a ww2 german spange. I dont know whether its original or fake and another thing with it is that as you can see it has the ww2 german iron cross ribbon instead of the ww1 german iron cross ribbon, my gess is that it was a replacement ribbon. So is this original or fake?
    thanks
    regards callum.

    I'm probably wrong, if I am sorry, it's not my area of interest but something tells me that it's not right.

    hi guys,
    i decided to give my spange a clean and here are the results. After the clean i believe the spange is original i have found lots of silver remaining in some spots no makers mark tho.

    Hi Callum I like the wiederholungspange!! It looks ok to me. They did make them like this I think. But don't quote me on that. If anything looks off about your version I would say that the prongs looked a little heavy (thick). This piece could be an aged Polish copy from last week though.

    There is quite a good reference site you may be able to get more info from:

    Iron Cross

    Your order should not have come on the Iron Cross 39 ribbon, Even though the ribbon does looks authentic.

    Regards.

    hi thanks for the reply but i thought i should tell you that i have had this spange for over 4 years now i bought it off a dealer and he wasnt sure if it was original or fake. but i think if you compare it to the polish fakes its to highly detailed, you are right tho the prongs are to big but you never know in my opinion

    The poles age their copies now before they bring them over to England for re-sale / whole sale. Whats interesting is that the dealers buy them and sell them on as originals because they are so good now!

    Here is my copy spange:

    It is such a nice copy in silver, I don't think I would want an original. All copies now are very nicely detailed. Problem is, it makes original German items go up further in price.
