Are these real of fake?
I'm being offered two medals, but am skeptical whether they are real or fake. First is a bronze Mother's Cross. What concerns me is the script on the back is not engraved. It is raised. Second is a vaulted WWII Iron Cross First that appears. I am very much a newbie and am looking for help!

The EK is & the enamelling on the mothers cross looks iffy. But pics aren't the best, sorry. Stewy
Thanks for the REALLY quick reply! Greatly appreciated! If anyone else has input, I would really appreciate it! Thank you!
You're correct about the Mutterkreuz being bad. As well as the raised lettering, note the narrow width of the blue enamel.

I agree on the MK being bad. Lettering is engraved not raised
Thanks for the help, everyone. This forum is awesome!
