Gentlemen,

  I've purchased Wuttemberg Knights cross and wanted opinions as to it being an original award piece or a jewelers copy and the maker.

Thank you in advance for all assistance

Chuck

It appears to be silver gilt? I would say it's a later WW1 award piece. Too bad about the damage.

Vince,

Yes, the seller states gilded silver with a period original ribbon, measuring 36.33 mm (w) x 40.17 mm (h), weighing 18.2 grams.

Thank You

Chuck

Hello ,looks as a  true one, althoug the type of damage is strange for a silver piece. perhaps someone took a chunk with a pair of pliers. the silver doesnt fracture like a friable alloy.

I do not like every piece, they`re selling there. But that only my opinion.

Your shown piece looks good. I know it. It should be a silver gilded piece of the Münzamt Stuttgart

It was produced in 1916 or later.

I like the MVO also because of its Sprungring.
