    You're right, it doesn't look very good. You would need to go a long way to find a fake Ehrenkreuz, I can't recall seeing one before.

    I agree with Adrian and gel45; does not look good. These are indeed not heavily faked, simply because original ones are always readily available for very little money.

    It might be worth a fortune to a collector of rare fakes!

    It could be the fakers have started to produce these so "9" will be accepted. Or testing their evil skills on a medal to see if it slips thru the cracks.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I can't imagine there's much money in it for them, a very common medal, low value and without meaning to be disrespectful, relatively undesireable too.

    I agree with you Adrian.... but think of it that way. Since its not so desireable and does not command a lot of money collectors might buy a fake thinking that the cross HAS to be genuine since fakers would waste its time on it!!

    * fakers wouldn't waste time on it
