    Do you have this cross in your possession?

    If so I wonder if you can provide the dimensions and weight? Zimmermann RK KvK with swords should weigh 42.6grams, be 52.4mm high and 51.9mm wide.

    The cross you show seems to have the Zimmermann die flaw on the sword blade at top left.

    The swastika also penetrates the ribbons of the wreath top and bottom

    However, the "1939" date I'm not sure about, it seems to differ slightly from the examples in Maerz' and Williamsons books. It's a pity that the photos could have been straight on.

    It's a lovely looking cross in my amateur opinion but I'm in no way qualified to give a definitive yes or no answer. I'm sure there are chaps on here who will be able to help you out.

    If it turns out to be authentic then it's a topper. If it turns out to be a copy... It's a topper
