    Default Have a group of medals that I need to authenticate!

    I bought this group with a refund guarantee. I think I am going to send the war merit back even if it is real. Please take a look at the pics.

    All these items supposedly came from one salesman display board. The 1939 Sprange is marked L/11.
    The KVK 1 is marked L/11 but the pin does not open as the clasp is squeezed shut?
    The close combat badge is marked:
    "FEC. W.E. PEEKHAUS BERLIN" and
    "AUSF A.G.M.u.K Gablonz"

    Please respond if you think these are authentic. Pictures are attached.

    I took pics all morning and this was the best I could do. I really need opinions on the close combat and the 1939 sprange.

    Between my issues with them, and having a few experts I know look at them we have determined that the entire lot is fake.

    The Iron Cross even has the "weak" magnetic quality where shavings were added to cheaper medal to simulate an iron core.

    They are ALL on their way "home".

    No need to be sorry. That is why I only buy with guarantee!

    Its unfortunate but, something good has come out of it. You have photographed and shared known fake awards for future reference and you got your money back. Not a bad result in my opinion!

    The guy ended up actually buying some items from me!

    So really, I don't think it could have ended better than that.
