    some people clean or even polish their medals so anything is possible.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Kevin...DO NOT CLEAN ! do not even attempt to clean, you will destroy the finish, it looks to be gilt washed, you will render it totally valueless ! look at what is under the gilt ....a base metal, if you clean, that is what you will reveal, the award was gilded when originally made....
    Prost ! Steve.

    I assumed that you were asking if you should clean this medal and after your last reply I now assume you are asking if it's an original or not, is that correct?
