    Default Medaille "Winterschlacht im Osten 1941/42" (Ostmedaille) opinions

    Hi Guys,
    I bought these two Eastern Front Medals. One of them is worn condition ( left side), I think someone tried to get rid of the swastika. Other one is unissued, with issue bag.
    What do you think about them? I'm not sure about a unissued medal, and a issue bag. Are these original?

    Thank you for your help!

    Medals, Paper Packet, and Wrapping-Tissue all appear original...

    Both look good to me too. Issue bag looks correct also. You can compare it to one I have here:

    Medaille "Winterschlacht im Osten 1941/42" (Ostmedaille)

    Different makers, but the paper types should be similar enough.

    BTW, for my two cents, I'm not convinced the first has been intentionally denazified. It's appears it may be just worn. You can see worn spots on the eagle as well. But, you would know more from looking at the profile.

    I found this about the issue bag: PK number 1 Company: Deschler & Sohn. But unfortunately I can not find any mark.
    I was thinking after this post that the first medal has be just worn, and nobody wanted to make any damage in.

    Thank you for you help!
