The pictures are not very good but one thing with a medal this rare is proceed with the upmost caution for as you said these are heavily faked
Unfortunately I do not know enough about s&ls to determine if this is original.
I Like it. This is an Excellent and original S&L. It checks All of the boxes and has None of the red flags. All of the die flaws that Should be are there and I can see no questionable bits to this one. The Seller is an Extremely knowledgeable and trustable Seller and is one of this site's Sponsors. If you are looking for a Real Ritter that has actually been Issued and Worn, This is one to not miss. The Case, also, looks to be 100% good and is a nice to see addition. If you do not pick it up, I doubt that it will be available for long.

Hope your able to get this Jem, I know very little about this medal but it is hardly seen
Thanks for the comments. I will look into this further.
Well G43,lets hope you get it if you have the money!!. Looks nice I can't pass any info on the cross as I don't know enough on theses awards! But best of British luck if you do choose yo buy!!! Cheers Terry.
I would stay away from a RK sold online... It takes a lot of examining in order to find if it is genuine! I think there is one being offered in the classifieds section in our Forum by all1knew... This one is for sure original!
A nice S and L !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
Good luck Gel
