Hello there war relics forum!
I've just purchased my first Iron Cross and am waiting for it to ship. As with most people, I am having those post-purchase worries that the cross could be fake. The seller mentioned the magnetic iron core and three-part construction, so hopefully that will hold up. He also mentioned that these are the original ribbons, although they look awfully clean to me. It came in a deal along with the Hindenburg Cross, so if any information can be given for that as well, I would be very grateful.
I am not familiar with these things, as my main collection consists of WWII documents (booklets, photographs, books). So any help will be appreciated!
