    Hello to everybody!

    I've been trying to find out what is it but no luck so far, I'd appreciate if any of you can give me any suggestions. I don't posses this items as they are up for sale, that means I can't have any better photos unfortunatelly :/

    Here's the mystery


    And now the one I recognized but would like to hear your opinions, it's a cross for polizei service as far as I know



    If you have any ideas about these I'll appreciate it. Thank you

    Bart

    The first one is a complete fantasy item. (The design of its centerpiece with the eagle, wreath and year is "inspired" by an NSRL Leistungsabzeichen.)

    The second one is fake. (A copy of a Police Long Service Decoration for 18 years.)

    Ok, thank you

    I was suspicious after looking half a day for the first one that it may be a fantasy item. Hovewer, I'm dissapointed about the other one Can you tell me how do you know it's a fake? I've been looking and comparing it with other photos on the net and they looked identical to me :/

    Regards

    It's just the generally poor detailing (for example in the pebbled fields on the arms of the cross), the crude edges and the plump suspension. It looks cast to me.
    Please compare with these: http://warrelics.eu/forum/orders-dec...crosses-14319/

    I agree completely with Andreas' assessment. The first is fantasy, the second is fake. If you compare to the original examples in the link provided the overall poor quality should stand out, the many flaws, soft and crude detailing.

    Thanks guys, they're good photographs to compare, I must admit the fake one looks flat and without character to me now but surely will ask for an advice next time, no doubt about that!

    Cheers
