Both are fakes imo. The rk is the new juncker fake that appeared the last years on the market

My sentiments as well. It is a pretty good fake, though.

Are there examples of this type of cross on the forum? I know there was a type of few years ago that had the cross hatching down very well in the central part of the cross. However, that also had cross hatching at the corners.

That is why I posted this. Check out the outer corners.

I'd almost have the Oaks checked in the 57er forum as they look postwar S&L, but may be fake too. Worth more than the cross if they're okay.

IMO the RK & Oaks are not good. Tom

You are quite right.

I have one of these somewhere. If you want, I can sell it to you (as a fake of course).

I think that this is one that needs to be brought out periodically, as it looks very, very good. If the corners were "worn", I don't think you could tell the difference until you looked under a loupe.

I put this cross and oaks for sale in the "bizarre" area for $500 plus shipping. I would think that is a good price, as it is of very high quality, but not an original wartime cross and oaks.

I know that. I am selling them on the bizarre for $500 as fakes. There is no attempt to deceive anyone and they are identified as fakes. It's just $500, so I really don't care much one way or another if someone buys them. They are just good filler/display items.

I posted these, as they are a scary good fake and everyone should download these pics for side by comparison, as one could get fooled by glancing at the RK. I would not be surprised if people have attempted to pass these off as the real deal, as they are pretty close.
