    The risk of ending up with a fake when bying a Hindy is slim to none... I cant even remember ever seeing a fake.

    P.S.
    This one is made by Kallenbach Meyer & Franke Luckenwalde

    Quite correct....No fakes (as yet !), however there were post WW2 made versions, made as replacements for veterans, it is now believed that makers Duemer and St u L and perhaps others made them available to run alongside their 1957 ranges...........these are considered "real" and not reproductions.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thank guys, you sure brought good news, you think the ribbon is original as well? So is it normal for the medal to be in such great shape???

    Thank you for starting a new thread Johnson, you have a nice medal.

    The ribbon is original and looks like it was period sewn in this manner. Condition should only be used as one factor amongst many in authenticating a piece. Mint items from 70+ years ago are quite easy to find whereas a piece made yesterday can be aged to look 70+ years old in minutes.

    Have a browse on the forum there and hundreds if not thousands of mint WW2 items on here from decorations to uniforms to helmets to visor caps to belt buckles to field gear etc etc.
