    Default Eisernes Kreuz 1914 - true or fake ??

    Hey mates..

    first of all, i do not know if i am posting this on the right place as i dont see a WW1 Kreuz section, so i dared to put it here, hope there is no problem with that.

    i am being offered this cross, but i am quite ignorant on this matter.
    i see any mark, but maybe the pin/clasp might profe clueful ?
    Any opinions? I just have got this 2 pics, hope they help...

    Best regards to you all

    Dan

    I have a feeling that it's a one piece fake. These pics
    do not enlarge to be sure - plus the condition
    is very poor..........
    Regards,

    As Steve said, The pictures make it hard to judge the details but
    it does appear to be made in one piece and I do not recognize the style of pin and hinge.

    The photos need to be better very hard to tell you need some side views also but from what i see it looks like a repo

    I just did a quick scan through ebay and the cross you are being offered is most
    definitely a fake. The bad pictures helped to hide the details of the core. That core style
    has been making the rounds for a while now and that pin can be found with and without makers
    marks. Usually "Deschler and Sohn." but also with various other fake marks.

    Here is just a few examples I found----
