    Default Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1. klasse, real or fake?

    Hi all,

    This KVK has come up, and wondering what others think about it. I looked through a lot of KVK1 threads comparing - and it looks like a rough copy to me, those marks along the sides of the swords, hilts are causing concern, as well as the rough finish of the rear.

    But I did see some rough looking late period ones too, so I thought I would check with you. Good way to learn

    It's marked as a Deschler, on the pin and by the seller.

    A bad fake. Pebbling and wreath are appalling. I will post a good example.

    Thanks Chris. I suspected, but very little experience with these crosses.

    I cannot find mine. The hardware is bad as well, matches no variant I know of. Someone else will post there's.
