I've never actually seen Scheuring's face larger than the size of a pea before. :cheers: Is the MONSTROSITY below his EK1 airbushed in like his shoulder boards are? He made Major 03.11.14 so with what look like correct end of war awards otherwise, wonder what the photo "issue" was with his boards....

BTW thanks for helping run up my numbers today--The Moment is FAST approaching, now....

Does this one have a chance... ?

This was discussed at length on Feldgrau. It's considered either an outright fake or a modern re-design being awarded by David Bagrationi of Mukhrani, self-styled Prince of Georgia. In any case, the period ones were never made with rounded rays like this one. These turn up periodically in blue, or black with a red band.

IMO these are just fakes. The seller in question is not known for selling anything but fakes and is either an alternative name of the crooks in Aaachen or affiliated with them.

I couldn't agree more, thanks for your clear words!

don and bryan, as you can see, my cross appears to be from same maker as well. i checked my scale and it is correct. cross hovers between 22,9 and 23 gr. 

 we have 3 very similar examples with a relatively large disparity in weight--
