    Hi guys, hands up who has got one of these in their collection. It's a 2008 prototype put forward when the German Government was debating whether or not to re-introduce the Iron Cross for the Bundeswehr in Afganistan.

    The medal never went into production, but nevertheless, remains a nice item to look at.

    It is a one-piece non-magnetic casting, maker marked 65 with what appears to be WWII pin configuration.

    If anybody could add anything else about it's origin, I would be grateful.

    Pure fantasy item based on a magazine article.

    This subject has been covered so many times on various forums; "2008" EK1 (Yes, I know it's a fantasy piece).

    Hi Nick, thanks for the reply. I was totally unaware of this piece being a fantasy item. The story the dealer told me sounded plausable as he had only bought it that morning and was turning it around quite quickly. Luckily I didn't pay too much for it, so next time I see him I will try and get my money back.
