    Hi Ronnie, I have not made a big study of copies, but as a general rule:

    Thin and often rather lightweight metal. Not zinc

    The frosted silver is too bright and garish.

    Ribbons are fake: syntetic and will glow under a blacklight + fail burn test. Also the centre stripe looks oversize.

    Here is a repro, being sold as such:

    The Regalia Specialist Insignia Badges Medals Awards Uniforms Militaria.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Weight & thickness is definately one of the best ways to tell,but for that you need to have held a real one. The stick grenade is usually smaller/thinner on copies. Stewy S

    Now I completely understand why prices on these too are skyrocketing-it's because Stewy and Ade are buying up all the available stock :-D

    I just got one of them tonight from my sgt major and my friend got an Iron cross, they both look pretty genuine, and they have been kicked around a lot by the looks of things, but it there any easy to spot signs of a fake. I dont have any pictures at the moment but I'll get some up soon.

    ps, does anyone know about any huge WW2 German skull badges? the srgt major has one of them too, and about 40 other badges, medals, ribbons etc etc.
