    Iron Cross 1st Class WW2 Genuine or Fake???

    I've had this Iron Cross for a few years which I purchased from a dealer, in good faith, believing it to be genuine and not not a reproduction/fake. While it still looks genuine to me other collectors have questioned whether or not some or the Third Reich items purchased from this dealer are genuine or not. However, I do not wish to name the dealer concerned openly on the Forum. I can't see a maker's mark on this item.



    I am open to any views, either way, as to the originality of this item. Thanks for looking and for any help.
