    Exclamation Ritterkreuz award document... Real or fake?

    Hello to all forum members!


    I was offered for purchase an RK award document whose photos (low quality, though) are posted below. According to the seller it's real parchment...

    I have serious doubts regarding its authenticity and would much appreciate your expertise on it...

    Many thanks in advance and all my best!

    It's a fake. According to the Ordensträger there are no RKT with a surname starting GERF... or GERE... - alphabetically the listing goes Gerdts and then Gergmann.

    According to my initial reference book , there is also no such surname, so a skeptical KC document at least.

    Even if it was original, the deterioration and the lack of the presentation frame would have robbed it of much of its value
