A 40 year service cross - fake?

Article about: I do. It is the nicest looking one I have seen out there. I was tempted by a 25yr one, but it was well worn and looked very dull in comparison. Al

    Default A 40 year service cross - fake?

    Advertised locally is this 40 year service cross. The box says Deschler & Sohn, but there is no makers mark on the ring (or so seller says). Sorry, no more detailed pics available. Is $120 too much for this (if genuine, that is!)?

    Hi Al, my eyes aren't what they used to be and I can't magnify these pics. The pin is off-centered and crooked. I don't think I've ever seen a fake one of these presented as original but there's always a first. It could be good, but I would hate to say so with only these pictures. $100 would be a great deal if this is a legit medal.

    Take care,
    Jay

    It looks ok from the photos provided but to be absolutely sure better pics would be good.

    Its origional. The medal by itself is worth around 55 euro. I would offer 80 euro. If this is 100 dollers then go for it.

    Thanks for the replies. Their macro function on the camera is dead, so this was all I could get. I will take the advice and go for it. Thanks again,

    I picked it up last weekend, and it looks great. I hope these photos are large enough. The seller has a collection of Sammeln (?)numbered Party postcard/photos and a couple of winterhilfe matchbox size picture books that he wants to move on too. I will try searching on the site for these as I have no idea of value.

    Thanks again for all your help.
