    Default original Ritterkreuz des Kriegsverdienstkreuzes ohne Schwerter?

    hi i just got back from a week long vacation in which at one point I stopped by a military antique store in pomona CA and bought some stuff including this. I cant really tell if its original or not (im guessing not based on the low production number of these) however this one does have 2 marks on it as pictured, it has 800 stamped in it which I assume is probably a silver content marking and it has a mark in it that says L/58, im not familiar with that maker and any help with this would be great thanks!

    L/58 is the mark for Rudolf Souval.

    There were only three recognised makers of this award before May 1945, Deschler, Steinhauer & Luck and Zimmermann, Souval did not produce these during the war.

    Therefore it is reasonable to say that this is a post war produced piece by Souval who are renowned for their production of awards after the end of hostilities.

    Adrian is probably right. I have an RK EK w/swords and oak leaves . It's has pretty high quality craftsmanship and has the stamps, and even made of silver frame and magnetic iron core. The maker mark is L/12 ( juncker)and the cluster is marked L/50. This is most likely made by a similar firm , post-war.
