    Doesn't look good to me , the quality of the finish in the wreaths etc and other parts is poor

    Had a look at the SS stuff on the link to the site , never seen so much junk , copies , fakes and reproes abound , can't beleive people are paying those prices
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I can't say anything about it's authenticity but-$5,000 is way too much. I know a dealer who has one with ribbon-for about $1,400.

    I had one with swords minus most of the ribbon.Im sorry I sold it because of the small no. made and awarded by Hitler. I collected for 40 years and made the so-called experts look like fools. The one for sale is probably a copy.but I never call an item a fake unless I can hold it in my hand. ps Always buy with a return policy and buy local if possible. Cisco

    My knights cross of the wmc also was true to size and weight and had the black patina of medal with a 900 silver content. Like an old American silver dollar that tarnishes with age ,It was perfect.I sold it for three thousand dollars in 2007 to a collector who also bought my knights cross with full ribbon.Im sorry I never took a close up picture for collectors to see. Hope this helps and good luck hunting.
