Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer

Article about: I know what this is the Hindemburg Crosses for combatants but I'm curious about the authenticity of this. The dates seem to be an odd font and they seem a bit subdued. Any thoughts?

    Nothing wrong other than a bit of wear - it's a good one.

    It may have been rubbed from hanging
    beside a first war EK II.........

    HAHA great news! Thanks. I've been having bad luck with reproductions. :/

    These are still very plentiful, and also comparatively inexpensive,
    so no real need to fake them - It's likely to have happened
    though, with everything else being copied these days.

    This type of cross was my first war medal purchase.
    $12 - ages ago in the mid 1970's.........
    Regards,

    HAHA So with inflation maybe $30 now. I'll take what I can get.

    Usually around $20 - $25 with ribbon.........

    These are interesting to collect in their own right, as there are
    three types and many different makers. Probably the most
    common German award.
    Regards,

    As Steve says, a good cross, no need to worry about it being a reproduction. There were many makers of these awards so a variation in numbers and minor details is inevitable.

    Very nice, I am a late comer to collecting these crosses as I have only recently discovered just how attractive they are !
