    I'am not a specialist in the badges, but looks to shiny and one part of the cross is cut. Really hard to believe that they are being faked. Sorry, but I can't tell you nothing about originality- but I don't like it personally

    Hi, sorry I don't like it at all.

    The cross should of course be bronze in colour.

    Note that some of the detail is rather "soft" looking and there does appear to be some casting "flash" around the hilts of the swords. Is there any evidence of a casting seam on the edge?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Here is a good example from my collection.

    Note: is is possible that a medal of this type can appear to be not to be coloured bronze. Late war zinc made versions can loose all the bronze finish.

    I will show one of these tomorrow.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Strange that so cheap crosses is being reproduced. The cross it's self does not look for me as zink made. But Ade, I have a couple of examples which looks was never coated with bronze ( bronziert), but for sure they are original. If someone wants, I can post some examples for comparision

    Hi Guys, here is one of mine which is a late war zinc example which is now devoid of the bronze finish.

    Cheers, Ade.
