    Default Medal lot found fakes or real?

    I bought a box of medals many years ago. Mostly swedish but in the box there were also some german WWII medals. Iam aware that there are alot of fakes out there. The swedish medals in the box was genuine and it came from a famous collector. What do you think? Is there a slightest chance that my medals are real?

    The DRK is the only one that stands a chance, the others are poor fakes.

    You guys are missing the tagungsabzeichen...it is from Gau Sachsen and was sold in 1936. It is 100% original...probably the only thing in these photos that is.

    I was wondering which one of you would spot that........

    For all anyone knows, it could say "Made in Hong Kong" on the back....Personally, I don't like the soft details and weak strike-especially by the sword guard.

    I have handled literally thousands of tinnies...I have never seen ONE that was marked 'Hong Kong' (I'm sure that you say this in jest anyways). I would buy it based upon what I see here...you have to remember that hundreds of thousands of this one specific piece was produced in a short period of time (likely days). The quality of tinnies is all over the map....some are works of art and some look like they were a 5th grade art project.

    But this is just my .02 cents worth of course.

    Here is one that is going into our tinnie book right now. You can see that the details on it are about the same as the one the OP posted for review. His was upside down though...you can read it a lot better right side up!
