    Hello Alfons. Its a one looker no go. Very bad. Alot of points to mention. Firstly the suspension ring would be pure silver not plated. Second the quality is just not there even through the overly exaggerated forced aging, it looks to be single piece cast. I'm not sure how an award supposedly cased for 80+ years would pit so heavily? Exposed to water? If so how would the case survive? The type font for the maker mark even looks modern not that a case would be marked in such a manner. Please do yourself a favor and stay well away from this piece and the seller. Kindest regards.
