    Mate, you'll soon get shot down in flames about multiple items in a thread. It might take a while, but one item per thread is the way to go. It just avoids confusion.

    Brett is correct. Slow and steady.

    Most of these look good. I have a few of these myself.

    Not sure of the red round swastika pin.

    And think that the eagle pin (EK Spange) is a fake. Would need much better photos. Picture quality is very very important. Let those with more knowledge opine

    I'm not a pro on these but this one is obviously a poor copy. Too many flaws.

    The first thing is the reverse pin. This type of pin was used on low quality "tinnies", not awards worn daily on a tunic.

    Second is the very "soft" details with poor definition. These were high quality awards.

    Third item is the date. I have never seen a version with these wonky numbers.

    Finally, it looks cast and not die struck.

    Do a quick forum search on EK1 Spange or Spange zum Eisernen Kreuzes. You will find many many examples to compare to.

    And no, they were not all marked.

    I look at it this way - pull out some coins, look at the detail on a simple nickel or dime and think about the quality you should expect on something made by an artisan 70+ years.
    In many cases ( not all because there ARE good fakes about) you will realise good from bad yourself.

    The enameled pin is fake, some nice tinnies though.
