    It is an original but it has had the suspension ring replaced or re-soldered.
    There should be a letter for the makers' mark. I don't know what gives
    with the number - other than indicating the silver content - which
    this does not.

    There are still plenty of WWI EKII's around, so you can easily find
    a much better one.........

    I suppose it could be, Ingrid. Though it does not appear
    to be a Third Reich era Cross.........

    It certainly has the unique Meybauer shaped '7'

    The ribbon ring has obviously been resoldered.
    I am about 90% sure that the cross is a Godet, although it's in bad shape and
    hard to make out the core details. --- Below is a picture of the inner corners of
    my Godet first class. The beading looks really close IMO.
