    Hi, although I am not really an expert the cross rises my suspicion too. I really don't feel comfortable about the style of the date and some other details as well.

    Maybe I am wrong but does the crown resemble to anyone else one of the types used by "KO" on 1914 Iron Crosses?

    I agree completely. The entire set up is a mess.
