    Default Ritterkreuz des Kriegsverdienstkreuzes ohne Schwerter

    My aunt gave me this medal more than 30 years ago. I think it is a rough example Ritterkreuz des Kriegsverdienstkreuzes ohne Schwerter but I'm not sure. Any help identifying or validating it's authenticity would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Bryan

    Hi, and welcome to the forum! Your ID is correct.

    Sadly it is a copy.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The quality of the die strike and the metal used.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Unfortunately Ade is correct, this is a fake medal as can be told by the poor quality. Thank you for posting though.

    I agree, at first sight the poor quality is clear
