    Default Spanienkreuz in Bronze?

    Before I use it as a ninja star on my next camping trip, I wanted to confirm that this Spanish Cross without Swords is indeed a fake.

    I've looked at many examples on the forum and the details on the eagles are just awkward. The eagles' feet look horrendous. The eagles also have the notorious "droop tail", which I believe is common among faked Spanish crosses.

    The piece is marked with an "L/21" and is missing its pin. It just looks very crude, but I have no experience with this medal. That being said,I bought this as one of my first pieces for $50 at a antique fair so finding out it's a fake won't be so terrible... Your feedback is much appreciated, thank you in advance!

    You seem to have it covered quite accurately, it is a rather gruesome fake trying but failing to be a Foerster & Barth SC w/o Swords in bronze. At least you haven't been too badly burned!

    Ugh, I was clinging onto the .00001% chance that this might be real. I've had it front and center in my collection for the past couple months. Stupid. Now I know...

    On the flip side...
    Ninja star time!!!!!!
