Hindenburg Cross real or fake?

Article about: Hey just given this Hindenburg Cross from someone I know and I was wondering if it was real or not. The back has what looks like a BCO in an upside down triangle.

    True that, but the KvK was the 1st such "red,white,black,white,red" configuration that popped into my head! I think you nailed it, though, with the Vet's medal! Good spot!
    Thanks for all the info! I'm guessing his dad found the pieces separate and put them together. Or maybe they were on a dead soldier... Who knows.

    Most likely the first speculation because this is not a "in combat award" like the EK or the KVK.

    Well I was told he found it in a trash pile in a factory somewhere just after or near the end of the war.
