    Default Lot 2: Are these Medals Real or Fake???

    Hi all!

    I need expert opinions on a bunch of German medals I purchased in an enormous lot. The lot includes mostly American medals, ribbons and bars, but the German medals included in the lot have me curious.

    I will be posting several detailed photos of the German medals, across several posts for house keeping sake, in hopes of getting feedback from the experts here on what they are, and whether or not they're authentic. I'm anxious to see which ones I think are real match up with everyone else's opinion.

    Thanks!

    Hi Stewy! No need to apologize, I didn't really buy the lot for the German medals (knowing how many fakes are floating around out there). I purchased the lot for a fair price based on the American items.

    Which one is the "Wiedmann Infanterie Sturmabzeichen" medal?

    Whatever the bottom left is meant to be it's a fake. Hardware like this is seen on several types of awards. Stewy S

    Stewy, bottom left is trying very hard to be a NSFK Motor Pilots Badge.

    You'll notice that all the fake's hardware look very similar.
    Here's a photo of the NSFK badge.
