    Default Medal for Outstanding Achievements in the Technical branch of the Luftwaffe

    I know what it is, I know what it was issued/given for, what I am unsure of, is it period?

    These are faked, and usually easy to spot, spelling mistakes grammar etc: But this one looks pretty good...... BUT.....It's been made into a box to hold something.

    They were in zinc as far as I know, and this one "appears" to be the correct material.

    Is it 2 awards ???? The material it is stuck to could be Bakelite, or horn? It has a piece missing. I'm not sure if the photos are much to go on, but it sure has me wondering.

    It came in with some other bits and pieces that I'm sifting through ....and anyone with any ideas please say

    Hi Johnno,

    Looks gen to me, the outer part of the box does appear to be bakelite as horn doesn't chip like that.

    regards, Ned.

    Thanks buddy, I felt it was ok, as the detail is good, but it's always good to check. Do you think there are 2 medallions? I'm wondering if there might be two.....

    Good point, I never thought of that! Looking at the thickness of both pieces I would say that there's definitely more than one split in half!

    Just for comparison, here's a fake one. Not the general weakness in the fairly crude rendition of the overall design and soft appearance of the lettering. Also Goring seems to have a mensur scar as impressive as Otto Skorzeny's.....
