    I'm not good with WW1 medals and such, but these medals just don't look right.

    Just my two bits, but the iron cros has 2 different crowns, the front and the back are different, seems odd to me.
    The letters in the back of the EKI seems modern.

    Eddy, again all bad, these and the other three previously shown are probably Baltic states/Polish copies......the EK I is trying to be a "KAG" marked piece, but instead its mark ends up looking like "KAC" !....a load of KAC ! Where are these up for sale ?
    Prost ! Steve.

    The initials 'KAG' look like they were done on a pantograph machine
    and cut into the surface, not stamped. This makers mark is usually
    seen on the pin. Nasty looking EKII, as Jean above says............!

    Steve (Oradour) is correct.
    Regards,

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for all the comments! Steve, these where not on any site for sale, i've been offered these by a friend of mine. He didn't know if these where copies, he bought them many years ago. So thanks again for all the comments i know now to stay away from these badges!

    greetings,

    I have no expetice on flight badges so I won't comment on it.

    I can say that the 1914 Ek1 is fake. The 1870 Ek2 is fake as is the 1914 spange and the oakleaves. SORRY.

    KAG crosses had a complete different style pin and were never marked like that. That particular
    style was seen making it's way through ebay a few years ago. Some with the KAG mark and the
    eagle stamp and others with only one or the other mark. BTW--you will never see an original
    cross with that eagle stamp on it either.

    The 1870 is a well known fake commonly called the "muffin" crown fake. These been floating around
    for 10 years or so. They can be seen with all sorts of different types of attachments and with many
    different makers marks.
