Hello, gentlemen,
can anybody help me

Can an iron cross, so ugly, be original?

What do you guys think of this Medal Bar?

Kind regards

Dear 03Fahnen

I see a small maker mark on the ring, can you read it? It might help with determining whether the EK is real or not.

Kind regards Laurentius

The EK looks strange, at least as was repainted. Indeed, the signature and some more pictures will be helpful here.

The EK2 is authentic.

 

However I have concerns regarding the mounting itself. The ribbons don't have the lopped edges like the originals have and look synthetic in my eyes.

Have you black-lighted the bar?

Do you have a picture of the reverse of the bar and close ups of the edges of the EK ribbon?

Dear 03fahnen

This is quite a pity, if it were to be real it would have been a nice addition to your collection. If I'm not mistaken Weitze offers a lifelong authenticity, so if you go to them and show them the evidence (quite clear in this case) they will probably give you back your money.

Kind regards Laurentius

Such a shame

but maybe tell them you want your money back and you're keeping the ribbon bar....

They surely would have Uv'd it.

good luck
