    Sam,
    Can you copy the pics and post them here? When the auction ends or is removed, the link will be dead and render the thread useless because we'll be discussing something we can't see.
    Besides which, I'm at work and eBay is banned so I can't open the link anyway!

    It won't let save the pictures......I wish I could. Here is the posting coments!

    On auction is a 100% Guaranteed Original German Cross in Silver.

    The front shows the year 1941 and on the rare wide needle of the medal you see "41" which is the

    LDO (German medal Licensing marking Code) for Gebrueder Bender, Oberstein Germany.

    Gorgous German Cross in Silver. This belongs no doubt to the very rarest awards of WW2!

    The "Spiegelei" (fried egg) was awarded far less often than even the knights cross, one of the rarest most sought after and most expensive awards of WW2. The Silver German Cross was awarded even less often than even the Golden German Cross.

    CONSIDERING ITS AGE IN Great CONDITION, Needle System fully functional, no deep scratches or dints.

    The German Cross was issued in two degrees: gold and silver , the former being an award for bravery, the latter being for distinguished service and was considered a continuation of the War Merit Cross with swords. The German Cross was unique in that the Gold and Silver degrees were considered as separate awards but should not be worn simultaneously.

    Very nice condition, obviously old, but no deeper scratches or dints.

    please ask all questions before bidding

    100% Guaranteed FULL REFUND Original

    The medal is the 1957 reissue without the swastika. I do not know if these awards are copied. One can not tell much from the limited images.

    So is it silver or gold? If it's the silver version it would have a KVK in the centre, not an EK.

    It definitely can't be a silver DK if it has an EK in the centre so either someone made a bit of a cock up on the assembly line or it is a gold one but with the gold polished off.
    As for the helmet............ throw it to the lions in the helmets den..........!
