    Question Lot of Assorted Medals: Authentic Pieces?

    Hi, guys. I saw this lot of assorted WWI/II medals for sale at auction and was wondering what you all thought. Most of them look okay to me, but of course I am no expert and wanted some feedback.
    One very odd thing I noticed, however, is the wound badge which appears black but then has a solid back and is marked. I'm also not sure about the pin assembly on the WB. The lot is going for $100 which, if all authentic, I thought was a pretty good deal if I could get it at that price.

    Any thoughts and opinions greatly appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Adam

    From the pics shown, everything seems to be ok with the exception of the black 1939 wound badge. It could very well be an original painted black (for whatever reason) and a replacement pin added.
    Obviously better pics would help but for $100 it's worth a shot. I wouldn't go too much higher than that personally though.

    $100 is a great deal. The Italian/German medal is worth that alone.

    Adam, i would try and get better pics before you buy. The price is very low
