    Dealer reputations can be won or lost very quickly in the age of the internet and they are lost far more easily and publicly than won.

    Daniel has had a good reputation, I hope he doesn't suffer from this episode.

    It appears to have gone from the awards section.

    He is an excellent dealer. However this is the second time an item of his I bought has been deemed a fake and he very quickly apologised and dealt with it well.

    I have been buying from him for years and will continue to as I am sure things like this happen to the best of dealers

    It just shows the importance of getting items checked on as many forums as possible first!

    Yes, he took down both awards as soon as I bought them, luckily I had already saved the images.

    Dealing with selling a potential fake is good, trying to sell that same piece again with no further clarification on authenticity (that I can see) is a bit troubling.

    Daniel has nicely responded to my email, apologised and offered to refund the initial purchase price so all's well that ends well I think.

    Daniel here. First post at this forum for me.

    Sorry for the mess.

    Nick first asked about this item this saturday. We pmed on WAF a couple of times and I was pretty busy with my new update.
    So unfortunately I paid too little attention to what he wrote about, then the update came with approx 30 orders. Glenn's was one of these.
    Since this item wasn't on the new item list it was removed from the shop(like all other items that are sold and not in the newslist).

    So i'm glad that Glenn posted it, although you can read on the net that this award actually was awarded with this kind of breast shield(link on WAF) and so far I have seen no proof that it's actually bad.

    I gave Glen the option to be fully refunded including fees or buy the medal for 30 euros, which he did. (The few returns I have will always include a full refund, no questions asked, and normally I will let the buyer keep the item, so really no issue or work for the customer. In this case Glenn had paid but I hadn't shipped it).

    Glenn I will also send an extra gift for you. I hope you will have some use for it.

    Thanks guys.
    While checking the award section of this forum I saw that you had posted this medal here http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/orders...reuzes-369351/
    No bad responses as I can see.

    So I guess we all have to admit that at this point it's a open game.

    Here is the link to the German page Medaille des Deutschen Roten Kreuzes 1937

    "Die hier gezeigte Medaille hat im Gegensatz zu den anderen Klassen einen Adler ohne aufgelegtes Brustschild mit Rotem Kreuz. Medaillen mit Brustschild kommen zwar vor, sind aber nicht statutengerecht."
    Translated:
    "The medal shown here, in contrast to the other classes have an eagle without the DRK breast shield. Although medals with breastplate occur, but are not statutes justice."
