Hello,

Any opinions on this DKiG would be much appericiated, maker Klein.

As you can see it has been engraved and awarded to OBLT R MEYER 07.02.45 U-1055.

I am a novice compared to many, but I am not liking the wreath or the reverse.

Thanks Paul, like you I am also novice when it comes to a badge like this. One thing that I would expect to see with something as scarce as this would be some provenance, this the seller does not have.

Cheers stephen.

I'm afraid this is definitely a copy. One of the East European fakes usually referred to as "Latvian" made.

Most instantly obvious give-away is the far too wide and too bright red enamel ring under the wreath, but there are lots of other problems with it too.

(The details are correct in that an officer named Rudolf Meyer from U-1055 did win the German Cross on 7 Feb 1945, but not a snowball's chance in hell of this being it.)

Dear Stephen,

in my opinion the cross is a sure reproduction.
