    It has the features of an Imperial EK II (WW I) but the dates, the Kaisers initial and every other detail is missing.
    Maybe a cheap copy or a very bad fake.
    Thats all I can say about it, might want to replace this one in the Imperial section, those guys can give you the answers you need.

    Regards,

    Yes, it's a poor fake of an Imperial EK2 so I'll move it to the correct section of the forum.

    This looks like a 1960's vintage "Surfer's Cross". These were popular in the USA when I was a kid. They were not meant to fool novice collectors, they were just a fashion statement of the "rebellious" youth. I have one somewhere at my parents' house with the other keep sakes of my past. Jim G.

    I concur. This is a crude, cast piece which merely
    resembles a WWI Iron Cross.........
