Real or Fake Kriegsverdienstkreuz?

Article about: Hi Bob They are not overly faked but the ones that are usually have poor, soft detail. They are nice crosses with a striking ribbon and easily found with packet of issue. Nick

    Default Real or Fake Kriegsverdienstkreuz?

    Hi guys. About 5 minutes ago my mom's friend gave this to me. I told you guys about this a while ago. He told me he got it for a quarter in the 70's/early 80's. I'm leaning toward fake, but you never know. I think it is fake, but didn't want to tell him.

    It looks absolutely fine to me. The points are a little bent but it's an original KVK.

    This is the correct name for this medal.

    It must have been dropped a few times, but all
    you need now is a ribbon.
    Regards,

    It went through college and a parent's attic. I plan on getting a ribbon at the show of shows in Kentucky when I go. Do you guys know how much they are worth with and without the ribbon and in this condition?

    They go for around $45 on average with a ribbon,
    which are easy to find...

    For starters, he bought it at a garage sale for a quarter in the 70's. I know they made fakes then. And, the corners were bent. But he told me he dropped it in college. I might want to buy a few more of these. They are nice. How can I tell if they are fake?
