Default Brunswick war merit cross fist class.

I really like the look of these crosses,but I am having a hard time finding good examples. I found 4 and they are all different. Mostly I see the 4 in 1914 is different. And the spacing around the EA is different.

Anyways I see this one for sale and I think it's fake,but I'm not sure.

Quality looks good, but not typical reverse hardware for accepted award pieces.

That pin looks very Zimmermanish to me. So what does an issued one look like?
