    this looks like it is made of Nickel not zinc looks like it might of had a silver wash to it, it's maker mark is stamped 45 can anyone help me in who made this one and I hope I have a real one, thank you for any input. I can't get my camera to get any closer. If there is no maker mark code 45 then it probably a fake then.

    Please post straight on front, and reverse photos.
    By the way, there is no known maker of these using the PKZ number 45.

    I put it next to another one like it but made only of zinc that one is flat but with this one the makers code 43 kind of hard to tell, if you mean vaulted like the EK1's then no. Is this one only suppose to be vaulted? I have never seen a vaulted War Merit Cross 1st class

    My 65, K&Q, likely vaulted by the recipient.

    Now I see then mine is not as vaulted as yours you have a nice one thank you for sharing it with me now I know what to look for this will make a good learning curve for me. When you collect these items Ever wonder who might have worn them or this War Merit Cross 1st class itself?
