    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    I have moved your thread here.

    You have the German medal for the Entry in Czechoslovakia. Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938 - Commemorative Medal october 1st 1938.


    The Soviet Medal is for the Victory Over Germany 1945.

    Both are original.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello and welcome to the forum,

    You can trust Ade's words. I can confirm the German medal too, a nice original example with original ribbon. Well done.

    Russian medal has for sure replaced modern ribbon - originals are very far of that shiny.

    Not sure about originality of German medal ribbon too.

    Oh dear, is this a fake ribbon as well Bruno? Look how it shines I guess it must be fake then... No malice intended Bruno - I am only stressing a point here, namely that originality cannot be determined by the degree of shine to an historical object - as such no offense was intended either.

    So have I and I have seen this a lot lately on the forum from less inexperienced collectors, comments along the lines of "it looks too new to be real" or "it looks too shiny". That's just not the way it works. The degree of use and the environment where the item has been kept are far more important factors than time itself when it comes to condition.

    Nevertheless, gents,

    But Im happy about shiny originals in your collections

    Note that I did not comment on your assessment regarding the Soviet medal in question, merely on your faulty "shiny" logic You are probably in a better position then am I to comment on Soviet awards, as I don't collect them. If you in 1945 placed a fresh, new ribbon in a case where no light could reach it and in a case that would not react with the ribbon (through acids etc) and if this case was kept in an environment perfectly suited to conservation (correct moisture level etc, stable temperature) - the ribbon would come out of that box in 2012 looking pretty much, if not exactly like it was when it was first placed there.
