    And happily, on this forum, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Agree. And so a argument doesn't ensue, I will respectfully reserve any other opinions.
    But, come on, destroying a original? Why?!? I assume anyone willing to do so has never earned one themself.

    Those are great fakes Eric, i can see that soft enamel was used, filled in with a syringe, just up to the brim, quickly baked and then left to cool, shrinking, or doing what a cake does when you open the over door after 15 minutes - even though the wife says "Dont!" The whole first impression thing is also just off putting. What do you reckon about the two MCs in post 1? No real warning flags from my perspective. (Saturday night, no glasses on, late, you can imagine my "perspective" right now )

    So you (also) agree that both MCs in post 1 are original then?

    Well, looking at the crosses Eric posted one can clearly see the lack of quality to the enamel of the cross itself, disregarding the horrible roundel. The rays are also not well defined as in what you would expect from an original. The wording on the rear, especially the silver one, is irregular in depth. It is also my understanding that there should be a period/full stop after the 16.

    If one of them are fake Jo. It sure has me fooled, but then again it would not be the first time.

    The writing on the back is off center, I will say however they did a pretty good job on central disc on the bronze.

    The only difference i can spot between my MC and the one in the first post is the difference of the lettering on the back. The 16 seems smaller on my MC, and the D is less Italic on my example. Could just be a different maker.
