    Apart from the Imperial EK2 ribbon on the KVK the medals look like good originals. I can't hazard a guess as to the authenticity of the ribbons as the flash does them no favours.

    The top Kvk has the wrong ribbon...that looks like a repro WWI EKII ribbon, btw...The medal itself appears good.
    I see no problems with the bottom award...

    The War Merit medal ribbon looks like it was ironed and the silken ribbon on the reverse glossed from it.
    Its a rather nice medal.

    Here is my War Merit medal. IMO every collector should have one in their collection.

    This statement puzzles me, why deal with him at all? When I don't trust someone, that's it, I don't deal with them, period.

    The thing is Todd, that ive managed to make a couple of good deals, actually he knows far less of what he claims (he sold me some decent original medals thinking they were reproductions) so I can save a few bucks. I respect your choice of dealing only with honourable dealers but sadly sometimes I dont have a choice due to the fact that I live in an army-less country like Costa Rica, so getting hold on some good militaria gets tricky. Also, if in doubt I ask the more knowledgeable: the members of the WRF
