Put together with pieces that are not war time known components . Still bad .

A corner riding up/sitting on the swastika can be found on war time made crosses .

Haven't seen many medals with frame covering the parts of the medal, it looks old and vintage, but the frame does seem odd, others in the forum may be able to tell you more since german medals isnt my field

I still agree with Douglas, as I know him from another forum I know from before he is very competent with EK.

 

This cross is bad because none of the parts match known originals.

 

On originals too the frame can overlap the swastika too, I've seen it for example many times on the famous Junckers.

Makers of some of these post war fakes go to a lot of effort to 'age' their product !

Quality is still far off .

 

In case of Juncker - they used many different cores and most likely for that reason they did not - pre-file - the frames .... not knowing what core would go in  .... some fit nicely - some fit barely and some fit badly !
