Baltenkreuz / Where are all the Baltic Crosses?

Recommended Posts

Two very generic observations:

First, I have seen so many fakes since the 90s with screwplates marked Kortman that I won't consider buying an award or regimental badge so marked. Second, while there's not a good close-up of the Russian silver hallmark anywhere in the four photos, there's enough of it showing here and there for me to think that it's completely bogus. Fakers have been struggling with faking Russian hallmarks for years but if you have some basic familiarity with the originals, the "tells" are always there to see.

Crispy ribbon bar there Uffz, I have a lone Baltic Cross 1st Class that is likely a Meybauer.

This thread has a cornucopia of variants!
