Fake EK2 or really rare!?

Article about: Saw this one on ebay this morning.... the seller claims that this EK is really rare because the ring goes through the cross rather than being soldered to it. Is it BS?

    With the fact that there were around 3,803,384 awards
    of this medal, there are still plenty to choose from
    in much better condition - $50 and up.........
    Regards,

    I do not believe they were awarded crosses. I have heard ideas that they were made as theater props and as souvenirs. I don't think anyone knows for sure.
    That theory would explain the rather neat, drilled hole.

    This one almost looks like it has a brass base with a silver wash. I have a brass one but the "FW" under the crown has a different font than this one. Also, mine has an iron core and I can't tell if this one is a one-piece from the picks, but it looks like it. Mine has a loop soldered on one side and curled over to the front.
