    it is really hard to be sure with these distorted pictures. But I don't like it

    Please post straight on obverse and reverse photos if you really expect someone to give you an opinion if this is original or not.

    Well

    Its a little hard to say, pictures with less glare and from the side of the hinge would help, but IMO its a good Karl Gschiermeister (50)
    I would wait for others though for a second opinion, but a cautious thumbs up from me

    Hi again

    Here you can compare: [50] Karl Gschiermeister, Wien - KVK1 DNA

    Needle & maker's mark are different, in my opinion. I never found this cross with horizontal signature. And, in the GCA database of fakes is described a cross with similiar pin set like Yours above, as existing with signatures 50 & 51 (and w/o sign).

    regards

    Yes...the question that more concern me is the position of the maker mark , i never see a genuine Kvk with this horizontal signature. You're right...at 90% is a fake but we can wait for others opinions.

    this is a photo of a KVK 1 that i found on a very very important site... it has the ''50'' in the same horizontal position. Is it a fake too?

    No, the position of MM is not the most important factor. Still the whole pin set is suspicious iMO.

    But I don't feel myself to be a big expert in this topic. However, I can ask also at the German Combat Awards forum, and show your pictures - if you are not regsitred there.
