Any body .......... It can be that bad ......
Not very knowledgeable on these Mike but the poor soldering of the edges ( you can see the lack of sealing the halves ) does not bode well for such a high award IMO.

Ok can get some more information please.I could not find anther morigi fake like this one.

Or an original .from my understanding the morigi fake is really good so what was the "give away"
The obverse and reverse date are a dead giveaway, Morigi also uses a frame with dipping öse.
See here for another example. Please do a search in the cross section on WAF for "Morigi" as well.
Nick is quite correct , plus these photos are not ones i would want to see if i was buying a genuine RK , they are all angles to try and prevent a correct ID , no close up's of the areas that really need to be examined !!

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
