    Default Two WW1 Iron crosses, unsure of authenticity!

    Hi all,
    I have had these ww1 Iron Crosses for a number of years now and have always wondered as to there authenticity. Both are made from a 3 part construction in what i assume is silver (tho not marks as such) as it is tarnished and cleans up like silver, both with a magnectic core. cross number one has a ring with what apppears to be a makers mark, cross two didnt come with ring.

    any help/comments welcome

    Both are good originals.
    The one is marked MFH. Even without being marked,
    we would know it was a "MFH" made piece from the
    very uniquely shaped crown the used.
    Unfortunately we still do not know who MFH was.

    They appear authentic to me!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    thanks for your opinions. As it was so long ago that i got these i cant recall if they were marked as repro's or not, i do know they were not expencive and that i've always belived they were not originals, however when i took a closer look at others online i was confused as to authenticity as they look to be originals or very well made repro's.
