Kriegsverdienstkreuz - FAKE or REAL

Article about: Roger's nice example is what I like to see in a KVK.................! There are still many of these available for a reasonable price, so I'd pass on the one in question.

    Not sure, but it looks nice. I compared your picture to one I have on hand and it looks OK to me, but wait for the experts.

    I too have never seen a KVK with such a fat swastika. Also, the material looks like it should be tombak but the colouration looks like it's faded as it does on zinc medals. I would pass on this one personally as there are many more unquestionable pieces out there.

    Here is a picture of mine. The swas on the original post does appear a bit fat.

    Yes Fayer, I don't think you've missed out on anything good there. The detail shown on Roger's example is sharper and the colouration is questionable...not to mention the chunky swastika.

    Regards
