    I am moving this to the Orders and Decorations Forum as it has nothing to do with the SS

    Thank you Bob.

    Pavel is correct. This is a fake screw back commonly found on fake EK1s. Original screwbacks were never marked as such. There was no distinction in the manufacturing process which allowed particular awards to be marked specifically for the SS. Or Heer, Luftwaffe or Kriegsmarine for that matter. RZM numbers were also not used on EKs or other combat awards.
