Ritterkreuz des Kriegsverdienstkreuzes mit Schwertern. Original or fake?
a friend showed me what it appears to be the Knight's Cross of the War Merit Cross with swords. He claims that the item is original but as far as I know only very few decorations of this type were awarded. I need your oppinion wherter it is an original war period item or a modern copy

It is a fake. Originals were made of silver.

It would have been too nice to be true. I guess he has to get rid of it.
Thank you very much!
A Crude cast fake-look at the edges of the sword grips. The originals were a Very prestigious and seldom seen award and were of Extreme high quality and detailing.
