This one looks just fine to me. It's a very common medal and not heavily faked. This one appears to be ground dug.
Hello as mentioned looks fine also most likely ground dug quite common unless it is very cheap I would try and fine one in much better condition
thanks , condition it`s not important for me, what i care from a piece for my collection if it is genuine or not. do you think is there any posibility of cleaning it?
to clean: water with soap, dry it and apply vaseline.
Looking for following WWII German items:
- anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
- entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
- forestry and hunting items,

Leave it as is. Attempting to clean it will make it look more messed up than the way it looks now.
Don't clean it, you will never be able to restore it to what it was. Enjoy it for what it is. These are inexpensive and common medals, if you want one in better condition you can find one easily.
And take acid completely out of your mind.

Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
I agree, leave it as is ! Ostmedals in this condition are scarcer than minty ones
