Dienstauszeichnung der NSDAP 10 Jahre, original?
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.

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
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
I have to say the right one does look soft in the details...
I don't like it,the eagles head is like a pigeons.
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.
Thanks for your answer. There's a hint in the eagle, you're right. And I think this is a good zinc one.
