Hello there,

Quality is far from an original cross.

"At the reverse are 4 or 6 rivets visible and through the number of rivets you can recognize if the award was made in Germany or Austria. The German Crosses with 4 rivets were made in Germany and the pieces with 6 rivets in Austria"

This is the info that i have. Mick :)
Thanks.
