everybody is focusing on the dealer thing but the simple fact is a lot of fakes dont come from dealers they come from antique stores, flea markets, ebay and internet sites where the person you bought it from will not give you a refund !! i just think the worst part is that many of them circulate around thier are fakes made 20 years ago that have passed through 5 six people hands draining 100s of dollars each time !! i think at the least they should be marked and put away and if you want to destroy it thats a personal choice i noticed on Eric's thread many people suggested giving kids the fakes so they learn that imo is a horrible idea you dont want kids to start out looking at fakes and that medal in his thread would sell for 15- 20 bucks in original condition !! i would say teach kids with originals not fakes !!
