  1. Congrats on your lovely purchase! Best regards, Daniel
  2. Very nice! If it will be for sale, I'd perhaps be interested.
  3. It's a very well knwon fake. Nothing else. The overlapping pin is just one typhical feature from this fake. This doesn't mean there would not exist any originals with long overlapping pins, there exist originals too with this feature. This cross isn't just original. It does not match any known original, no original maker, no original maker, believe me, I've been collecting Iron Crosses for years.
  4. I support the idea.
  5. Nice project Don. Sadly someone did "butcher" the bar during the years.
  6. Simply, it doesn't match to any originals. There is nothing "general" that doesn't match originals, but none of the details match originals.This same fake can be found with a fake Round 3 core aswell. ID:ing fakes, Originals and manufacturers is a process that takes years to master. One thing for beginners would be the overlapping pin, it's typhical this fake along its other details. I know my answer isn't really helpful and repeats itself, but it's true that you only must look at details of each original manufacturer individually (an dvariatiosn within them) and compare the unique details to other originals and you'll soon notice what distinguishes a original from that one other original, as a side effect you'll quickly notice fakes among other anomalities when you begin to learn. This fake is usually called the Round 3 fake, as it is most often found with a fake Round 3 core, and this fake core. Do however remember there exists several original Round 3's aswell and a Round 3 on the core doesn't mean fake. My answer is just a scratch on the surface.
  7. Sorry, it's a known fake.
  8. I like the set you've got your hands on. The small medal bar looks like a nice piece made in the early 1900's.
  9. Very interesting and a really late award date! Just thinking on that the war ended only a week later.
  10. Very nice! It's not everyday you see a CoL 1 carrier from 1918. especially not a German.
