    Default Ottoman War Medal (Gallipoli Star)

    Hello,


    I am kindly requesting opinions on this Gallipoli Star. It is well-known fact this award was produced by numerous makers and, therefore, its variations are rife. There are also some number of fakes on the market out there and I would like to verify authenticity of this one. Would you be able to provide your thoughts on this piece?

    It looks OK to me: quality enamel, nice patina, non-magnetic (quite likely to be silver), 55 mm, 16.7 g but side opinions are very welcome.

    This piece is a fake/specimen. It's specimen type C in my archive. It's produced since a few years and sold on ebay by a seller who uses 6 ebay user names.
