    Default Authentic or fake – Treue Dienst Ehrenzeichen, 40 Jahre.

    After I found this forum, I read threads and went through my collection to see which seemed obvious fakes and which I thought were good. I am posting what is left in my collection ( after I removed the items that I thought were fakes ) and I would very much appreciate your comments and thoughts as to the authenticity. I took as good pictures as I possibly could.

    This is my 40 Year Gilt Long Service Medal

    Thanks to all in advance for your thoughts and comments.

    An original medal, not sure about the polishing though. The extra shiny finish is probably down to the flash.

    Thanks a lot for your comments. This has a maker mark 1 on the suspention ring. I could not find who the manufacteror was. I guess I didn't look in the right place. Could some one please help me?

    Your cross (authentic btw) was manufactured by the firm of Deschler & Sohn of Munich. Nice catch.

    Thanks a lot for the reply. If you don't mind me asking, could you please tell me the reference you used so I can get a copy as well?
