    Default Hindenburg Crosses Collection - authentication

    Hi Guys,

    I came across a collection of Hindenburg Crosses (and a war merit cross) today that I would like to put an offer on, however I don't recognise some of the maker marks.

    Complete set is going for 70.

    Could you take a look and tell me what you think:

    TomCo, all look alright to me .....3 Hindenburg crosses....1 combatant, 1 non-combatent and a black widows version plus a 2nd class combatents War Merits Cross, worth about what is being asked, make a lower offer....
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hi Tom, all are original medals, the KVK looks like a nice tombak award in good condition with the orange coloured stripes on the ribbon.
    Steve is correct with his advice regarding the price, try and get them around €50-60.

    I question to this, have anyone ever come across a fake Hindenburg Cross that looks original?
