Am I missing something?

Article about: by spandau The description says silver iron cross, so maybe the price reflects that its actualy solid silver ? or maybe not..................... Many 2nd class crosses are marked '800' etc.

    Firstly let me apologize for the rubbish quality of photos, but they are taken off an auction site and although I asked the seller to post clearer photos, none have been supplied.
    Question is, the cross looks to me to be a normal WW1 EK2 so why the high price?
    (R9995.00 = + - $1250.00)
    This same question was asked of the seller and the reply was that this same said cross was originally bought off Ebay (of all places) for the princely sum of + 1400GBP !!!

    I would be more than happy to pay $50 USD for that wonderful cross. If better pictures
    were provided and the cross turned out to be in great condition and maker marked, I
    might even go as high as $60.

    $1250
    I think they got the decimal point in the wrong spot. The starting
    bid should be $12.50

    Maybe this cross was personally worn by Kaiser Wilhelm as he led his troops out of the trenches and across no-mans' land.

    My thoughts exactly, Greg. Some guys think that any German militaria is an automatic retirement fund.
    This seller, IMHO, is certainly very deluded.
    Roger, could well be...........nah!! :-)

    One of 2 options.
    #1 The guy is an idiot or #2 a con man.
    I would opt for number 1.
