Default "Bold" Lazy 2 Knight's Cross

Hello Everyone,

I borrowed this Knight's Cross from a friend so I could post it here for review. Before I made this post, I did a search on this forum comparing it to a lot of other "Lazy 2's" both good and bad... after that I'm thinking this one is fake.

The "2" stamped on this one is very thick compared to everything else I've seen so far. Not to mention it is on the right side instead of the left. And it seems that the "800" stamp is always off center when it comes to these Lazy 2 Junkers. Anyways, I guess I'm just looking for confirmation of my suspicion that it's a bad cross. I took a lot of photos so it will at least be good reference for anyone else who may come across one like this.

Cheers!

The makers mark stamping looks to have been applied after assembly at the very least as you can see the indentation deforming the silver frame. Just an observation of course I don't think this was done post assembly. I am sure the experts will chime in momentarily.

Yet, notwithstanding the problems with the marks, I do see the classic Juncker cross hatching in the inner corners of the cross.

What about that?

It is a kind of cross-hatching, but surely is not the classic Juncker one. It is a fake made to deceive with that cross-hatching. It will fool a lot of people and for sure has already. But it is very far away from a real Juncker.

I'm glad someone else noticed that, I saw that as well, but I wasn't sure what to think of it.

Thanks to everyone for your input.
