    After researching this piece further and trying to find the paperwork, I think this is authentic. Can anybody confirm or give me any further guidance on what to look for on the piece? Any pics of fake "900 21" maker marked pieces to compare to?

    The case is not original. Cases for this award were all red, no black cases were issued.

    The piece in the picture is not Grosskreuz, it could be 1st class pre 1943 or 3rd class post 1943 award.

    Try to measure your cross from point to point and look for markings on the top of the fan. Also the ribbon size is different with each award.

    Still there is something in this piece that bothers me, but to get a true answer you would need to take the cross to a well known professional dealer to be evaluated because pictures only go so far.

    You showed the breast star of this award also, which I can say is a fake, but put together the star and this cross could have been sold to your uncle as Grosskreutz award without case. Still it should have sounded off 100 alarm bells because case is wrong and the star is poor fake.

    Here's an excellent article on the eagle orders from W.C. Stump:

    Hi Kaypee


    I don't know a whole lot on these but I can say I don't really like the ribbon based on these pic's...
