    My initial observation is that it's very poor quality with numerous die flaws. The word 'FUR' is misformed on the top of the letters and there is a flaw on the swastika as well as on the inner border within the wreath.

    Die flaws don't necessarily mean it's a fake. Different materials, old dies being used are all possible on original medals and awards.

    Don't judge it based upon these flaws, look at the whole picture and compare to others made of zinc. Joachim's excellent example is made from buntmetall so while useful as reference, it cannot be used as a direct comparison.
