My example to compare, sorry I can't find images of the reverse at the moment
From those pics I would agree it doesnt look good. Very soft detail
The wording is not at all as sharp as on Glenn's example
There is a nice one available here:
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
The Butschek example is quite nice, but sadly no eagle.
Thanks for the info Nick on the pictures and for the link , i am indeed looking for one with the eagle on the ribbon as my other one has the eagle so would be a nice matching pair. I can only ever seem to find the 12 year with eagle on as a medal bar with the 4 year next to it. I may go for that and have a pair that way. Although it means paying a bit extra. Thanks chaps for your help , first thing that jumped out to me on the sellers pics was the thin body on the ribbon eagle. Then the wreath just doesn't look right as all the outer left hand side looks to be within a circle if you see what i mean. Oh well on with the hunt . Much appreciated chaps , Thank you.
Compared to Glenn's medals I would not be buying the one in the opening post. The details are just not there in the eagle and the writing. There is no crispness on it. Compare also the length of the eagle's neck!
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
