Gents, 

Based on the evidence of the pics, might I ask your opinion on the authenticity of these War Merit Crosses with Swords 1st & 2nd Class.  There are no identifying makers marks on either.

Thank you.

Judging by the pictures, they look ok. The 2nd class has lost it's bronze finish as it has been polished by someone.
Maybe some of the other viewers can identify the maker of the first class example?

There is no need to cover over the swastikas!  This homepage is outside of German jurisdiction.

Reverse with 43 on pin, example without swords by Deschler, München, "1". There are variations of the style of pin

3 examples of 2nd class, tombak bronze, the remaining 2 are of zink, last example on right made by Franz Jungwirth, Wien, with original envelope,
and still has most of the bronze finish over the zink.
