    Hi, its a WW2 marked 24. Cant tell for sure if genuine from those shadowy pics, looks promising though, shame there isnt a pic of the obverse

    I dont think you will ever know if it came from Kursk!

    I think you could be lucky there, fare enough it isnít in the best of condition. I might have been tempted myself if i had seen it. You might be the only bidder because it isnít listed in the normal listing area for that sort of thing. I hate ebayers that are private you cant see what they have sold before.
    Best of luck

    I usually stay away from sellers with private listings and hidden feedback.... what kind of honest seller could possibly benefit from such conduct? Not saying that all private listings are bad, I just tend to be very weary of them... that's all. Not a collector of medals so I won't be commenting on the actual item in question... good luck!

    You need to take a closer look Rodder's. He appears to sell a lot of old coins and odd bits of jewelery. I'm thinking M.D. enthusiast.

    You've exhausted the regular ones Ned, now we have to make new words up!

    Only joking.

    As to the medal, an original '24', did you win it? If so, please post some better pics when you get it.
