    Not my area of expertise, but a UK eBay seller or two (possibly same seller with multiple accounts) "turns them up" often. Like at least a dozen a year. Also has bad fake WWI field caps and other rarities often. Wise to ask, but if you are looking at eBay, check the seller's sold listings for repeats.

    It is a fake and it does come from the UK. This seller also offers a lot of 1914 crosses
    that are fake as well.

    The great thing about 1870 crosses is that there were only a very few variations
    in design of original crosses. That makes them easy to study.
    If you are really interested in learning how to identify original crosses, look through
    this thread----

    Imperial Eks

    there are several good originals posted in it. Also, rbminis just posted this textbook
    example just last month.

    1870 Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse with 25 Year Jubilee Oaks

    This is exactly what an original should look like. Note the
    style of the crown, the shape of the "W" and the font style of the date. This is what
    you need to study.

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.
