Default 1870 First Class Iron Cross Fake

Hi guys,

This cross is completely out of my comfort zone and I am assuming its reproduction due to the lack of detail on the crown and date.

Ive been wrong before so just wanted to post it for some opinions?

Thank you all for the help!
William

An obvious and common fake.
Even too bad as a filler.
