medals- orginal?

Article about: I think you medal is original. The details are very good and IMO not the same as original posted in this tread. But its not easy to say when I don't have the two medals in hand.

    Personnaly I've some doubt about the EKII marked 5 on ring, the frame and dates are different to known exemplars.
    But is possible for not clear photo or my personal limited knowledge.
    I wait more pics or another opinions.
    After the new photo, I'm sorry but the cross is a fake, probably a fake made on Lituania very dangerous. (last frontier of fake Iron Cross).

    well I'm no expert at all, for me this is my school I am tying to learn, my only German medal is a German wound badge. I bought it from Alan G. so I am pretty sure it's real, thanks for showing your medal's. I have enjoyed them.

    Nice medal Nick.
    Views are too different to make a comparative with your.
    We can just compare close-up of details because fakes have good details (as happens with EKs).

    Regarding to the 1st medal showed (12 years), material it 's not right IMO, then head is not right too.

    Edit : just found 1st important difference in the red circle.
