    these medals are so cheap and abundand that it is no profit in faking them.
    If you collect them there are but a 25 makers, with or without swords, for widows etc...

    The crosses are fine.
    Just one observation: This should really be in the Third Reich section, as the Ehrenkreuz des Weltkriegs 1914/1918 was instituted in 1934.

    Agreed on all points and I have moved the thread over.

    AS a matter of interest, what other "WW1 medals" were actually instituted / awarded in the TR era?

    But the decoration was instituted by Reichspräsident Paul von Hindenburg nearly 16 years after that war ended as the first national decoration of the Third Reich era.
    Following Hindenburg's death in August 1934, it was awarded in the name of the Führer and Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler. It is a Third Reich award.

    Apart from the three types of 1914/18 Ehrenkreuz (for Frontkämpfer, Kriegsteilnehmer and Hinterbliebene), no other WW1-related decorations/commemorative medals were instituted in Germany in the Third Reich era.

    As a matter of fact, the countless unofficial WW1-related awards and decorations of the Weimar period were forbidden from wear with the institution of the 1914/18 Ehrenkreuz. (This included, for example, the Kyffhäuser-Kriegsdenkmünze, the Deutsches Feldehrenzeichen, the Deutsche Ehrendenkmünze des Weltkrieges, the Flandernkreuz and dozens of others.)

    However, large numbers of German WW1 veterans were awarded the Austrian, Hungarian and Bulgarian commemorative medals for WW1.
    The Hungarian War Commemorative Medal [Magyar Háborús Emlékérem] was instituted in May 1929, the Austrian War Commemorative Medal [Kriegserinnerungmedaille] in 1932 and the Bulgarian War Commemorative Medal [Медаль за участие в Европейской войне] in December 1933. All of these were authorized for wear during the Third Reich period. (However, obviously, no new awards of the Austrian medal occurred after the Austrian annexation in 1938 and the Bulgarian medal was no longer allowed to be worn following the Bulgarian declaration of war on Germany in September 1944.)
