    Default KRIEGSVERDIENSTKREUZ 1 - Authentic or Repro?

    Found this on an auction site. I can't ask about the price but I can ask for opinions

    Seller states "Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwerter maker marked “4” for Steinhauer & Lück, Lüdenscheid in silvered tombak. Slender vertical fish style pin with maker mark “4” on it. Very nice polished edges. Practically mint award"

    Appreciate any assistance here, and any general tips on identifying KRIEGSVERDIENSTKREUZ 1 as originals.

    Thank you!!!

    This is a very nice and original S&L KVK1 in buntmetall.

    The only recommendation I can give you to id an KVK1 as for originality and maker is to study forums like this and also this site KVK1 DNA. Its all about study.

    Thank you Nick. Have read this thread and other FAQ threads on this and other sites. Love these types of threads because than one does not have to resort to, "is it real or repro" posts like I did, which I can see are kind of a PitA for the long timers on this site.

    That's a nice minty S&L. If I didn't already have one I'd be hunting it down!!

    Edit - I did indeed hunt it down. I have bought a few things from Espenlaub and they have been very good.
