    Default Spanienkreuz in Bronze Opinions

    Hi friends! I have been offered this piece in a trade deal. I am not familiar with the intricacies of this particular medal so I wanted to get opinions of the group before I commit one way or the other.

    Thanks!

    I am merely a casual observer of these awards but 3 things strike me immediately as odd.

    1) The adler wings are heavily cast into the cross.
    2) The pin shape is unfamiliar
    3) The catch is oddly bulbous

    While these may be characteristics of a variant I am unfamiliar with, if I were to come across this piece in a market (and without further expertise on the subject), I would pass.

    Glenn's nailed it.

    The cross is based on the Junker design Spanish Cross w/o Swords and is an awful fake for all the reasons he gives as well as a couple more, avoid.

    Hello,
    Not for me for the reasons already stated. You can compare it to my example.
