    Default German Cross SILVER opinions please--real or fake?

    I bought this German cross many many years ago and I have never listed to see if it was really real or not. I have not seen enough of these to compare. Hopefully I can get some good feedback (negative or positive) on this. I also have listed some other badges I have (Close combat, Tank, Assault, Wound, EK spange, EK1, etc--in other threads). Thanks!

    Not good news on this one. Sorry it is bad.

    Note the oversized red borders which is an instant give away. The wreath is also incorrect in detail, etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Not good i've got to agree with Ade , the red borders are very poor as is some of the other details

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
