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.

    But all the "T's" on the end of "Wehrmacht" don't have the backward slant on the cross bar as this one does. I cannot see too clearly, but would be interesting to see. The lettering looks completely different. Is this also attributed to different makers?

    Well, probably there were more than one manufacturer but I think dies were identical. Example: medals for annexation of Austria, Czechoslovakia.. are very common but can we find differences ?
    Medal for 25 years civil long service, are not they all identical ?
    I don't remember another original type, it 's my thought that comes from my experience, but always ready to learn, I would like to see the medals that Sonny have to show.

    Nick, I have seen your thread in WAF, sincerly comments from new members and someone more don't pass me a good feeling.
    Seems to me there are no comments from real experts.

    I think this medal is a fake, but I'm only saying that the eagles are different on these medals.

    I have just made some close up pictures. IMO all 3 eagles are different.
    Look where the claws holds the swastika and the eyes are also different.

    Thanks Sonny, you have clarified all doubts.
    Very interesting so there were some manufacturers and eagles show some very little differences as you sayd.

    A pleasure.
    We can all learn in this hobby
    Thats the fun part about it. To get to study the medals down to the details.
    I bought a USB magnification x200 for that purpose.
    Then a eagle claw gets very big on a 20 inch. screen

    Thanks for your views on my 4 year. I have always thought it was in poor condition, so I am going to show it again on a few forums and if its a fake one I am going to enjoy buying another in better condition So here she is again for the last time:

    Cheers

    Hi Nick
    I 'm sorry but in my opinion your medal has no chance to be an original.
    I repeat, it 's not my field and this is just my opinion but I have many doubts with the little eagle too, very hard to see flaws so visible in an original stuff.
