    Default Lot 4: 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!

    Hey Stewy.

    Which one is the Ost medal (the SS medal is obvious). I'm not an expert on German medals which is why I'm posting them here

    As for the picture detail, I assume you clicked on the photos to enlarge them, right? Are they still too small? Let me know which ones you need closer shots of and I'm happy to post them individually.

    Thanks!

    Hi dzyner,

    The Hindenburg Cross, top left, looks ok to me and the Ost medal, top right, too. I'm not sure about the modern West Germany panzer badge and the SS time service medal.

    Regards,

    Ricardo

    The SS medal looks to be a cast item, lots of pitting om obverse.
    The tank badge is a modern Bundeswehr badge.
    The top two medals look fine.

    There's no helping the SS 4yr. Ost's ok. Stewy S

    All are good, bar the SS medal as already stated. Just for extra info, the Bundeswehr badge is a cap badge for the beret.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The ring on the SS medal is wrong, its not bevelled.
