    Default Dienstauszeichnung der NSDAP 10 Jahre, original?

    Hello there,

    I bought a group of medals in which there's this medal. It was a go/no go deal: I buy all the medals or noone!
    There were several ostmedaillen, KVK, verwundeten abzeichen im schwarz mit urkunde, 13 März im etui,... all original.
    That's why I took the risk by buying the group.

    Here are the pics:

    The left one, already presented here, is supposed to be original. The new one is the right one.
    Left: no MM, chocolate colour, 15gr, in one piece, non-magnetic
    Right: no MM, grey colour, 37gr (heavy in hands!), in 3 pieces, non-magnetic
    The thickness of the grey is almost the double of the chocolate one (because of the 3 parts)

    I feel it good, but I'm on the military medals, not on politic ones. I have very low knowledgments in this area.
    I cannot find information on the web.
    I hope I give you enough datas to help me.

    Greg.

    In my opinion the one on the right is fake mainly because of the poor quality wording on the reverseand the left one is an original

    I have to say the right one does look soft in the details...

    This medal is not minty like the other one. There are several hits, in eagle and elsewhere.
    I just checked in Weitze, he sells such a medal:
    https://www.weitze.fr/detail/26/NSDA...e__212526.html
    It is a "schwere Ausführung", which an "heavy model", like mine and in the same colour.

    It is possible that it's an end war medal, with a lower quality, as we can see on other military orders?
    The seller, not a professionnal, was certain of it's originality. I know that it's not a sign of genuineness, but the others medals are all perfect.

    Hello Greg
    I think both look quite good.
    I agree that the right hand grey coloured one could be late war and it certainly looks to have the zinc pest that you would associate with this type of medal.
    It does appear to have a hint of the bronze wash in your last pictures.

    Hey Saladin,

    Thanks for your answer. There's a hint in the eagle, you're right. And I think this is a good zinc one.

    Greg.
