    I agree with Nick and Tom - based on the photos it looks like an original example.

    @Tom: This medal (Die Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938) is being faked - the so-called "mask fake" comes to mind right now - but these are rarely seen without the accompanying "Prager Burg"-Spange.

    Kenneth is correct ! I dont think there is a TR award that is not faked

    Well, they do. The "East medal" (Die Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten) is also reproduced for instance. The medal in question here is fairly easy to reproduce actually, but it is quite "low-end" on its own, that is correct. But the "Prager Burg"-Spange is also easy to reproduce and when added to the ribbon actually almost triples the value of this medal just about - that is why they do it - it is easy and cheap, and with the Spange attached the medal is actually worth close to a "standard" 1939 EKII.

    Thank you for posting the photos Tom. Kenneth and Nick are absolutely correct, all TR awards are the subject of fakes no matter how lowly they are.
