    Default Nazi medals opportunity

    I have the opportunity to buy a presentation lot of WWII and pre war Nazi medals ~

    The price is more than reasonable and are part of a deceased estate ~

    But there is no verification ~

    The only one I can see had any reverse marking is the Iron Cross ~

    I err on the side of sceptical ~ if they are the real deal the price of $250 AUD would seem way too cheap in fact ~

    I'm guessing #2 is a fake ! - It's posing as a Knights Cross
    of the Kriegs Verdienst Kreuz, which are quite rare.

    The Mecklenberg-Schwerin Cross is the equivalent of
    the Iron Cross II for that State - that one is good
    IMO, but has the wrong ribbon on it.
    Regards,

    The collectors armory ( Gold Coast War Museum ) in Queensland used to openly advertise lots of stuff like the second one ( for years and years ) so it could well have been a 1970's fake from there?

    The Knight's Cross has very poor detailing to it. It is, almost certainly, not original, and so is worthless. The Mecklenberg-Schwerin Cross by itself is not worth anywhere near the asking price. What are the other pieces in the lot?

    The only one of any value has been painted. Not worth
    much at all this lot. The rest seem to be fakes as well.
    I'd pass to be honest.........
