    The writing doesn't look very good to me and the eagles detail isn't as good as original ones I've looked at.
    There's one here to compare it to if you like mate? German militaria - iron cross, waffen ss, luftwaffe, paratrooper – Military Antiques Stockholm It's under awards, medals then other awards

    It could be ok Glenn, I cant decide from those pics. The border looks a bit thin but detail doesnt look too bad to me

    Missing most of the silvering, but looks okey to me. Probably a late war zink that's been eating the silvering for years now. It's seen better days,for sure. William
