    Hi Robert,

    I'm afraid the mini and case are fakes as well. Here are two more example of that fake mini - one with a spurious Schwerin mark and one with a spurious Juncker mark. Also, the knurling on the pin is incorrect for Schwerin minis.

    Best regards,

    Thank for youre conclusions, hurts a bit for the second award as it is a complete cased set and paid value for it, some years ago guaranteed original, but it is what it is

    You are correct. It is what it is, but if anything, it's a good learning experience, albeit painful. I've said it before, I have 10 or so relatively not inexpensive awards that I purchased over the years before I found the forum that turned out to be fakes. But since joining I have not made a single bad purchase thank to the help of the fine members here, as wrll as studying the threads and buying good reference books.

    So don't be disheartened. Just reset and post before buying. Plus the research is the fun part!

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
