Default Knight's Cross by Junker - is it genuine?

There's a collector who is wanting to sell this Knight's Cross to me. I would sincerely appreciate any opinions on it. He says it is marked "800 L/12" with the loop marked "800". Thanks.

IMO as far as I can view it's a genuine Juncker KC.

Better pics would help surely.

First glance, I do not like it. But better pics would show for sure the true hallmarks of a Juncker KC.

to say for sure, clear pics and close-ups are needed.

It looks promising but it’s a shame people offer a high valued knight’s cross with such a horrible pictures. There is no good view on the crosshatching, maker mark and overall details. Very important in determing authenticity.

The person just told me he has the case and ribbon to go with the Knight's Cross, but had forgotten to send me the photos. Does the case and ribbon look good?

Can't tell much about the ribbon from this photo but it has the more desirable case. I'm confident from what's been seen so far that it's all good.

Great find, I hope you can acquire it.

Looks like a great L/12 knight's cross.
Can't get any better for me... lovely patina and good amount of paint preserved.
Nice early case too with mushroom push button.
