My last 2 addition

Article about: The spaces in the swastica seem to large and the stem of the leaves seem to close to the rim. Here is mine to compare, though mine is probably a diffrent maker. cheers, Patrick

    Sorry but there's no gold present on the Ost. It does look like rust Nick. Even the early buntmetal variants don't have that colour. Strange. Nick, look at the suspension ring. Does it look a little larger than normal to you? Stewy
    Hi Stewy, it looks the usual fat type of jump ring seen on these awards to me. We need better pics for sure

    ok, I understand we do not know eachother and that I had some glasses of chianti while learning how to upload pictures but it is gold, no nicotine no coffe or tea... the ring compared to the others I have is as big as the others.
    the medal appear to be in zink, no marking no silver traces.

    Thanks for ur help

    Tampered with, to make it more valuable? Even though it doesn't exist.

    Probably Ingrid, it does look as though someone has painted it !!

    Just tried to clean it with some nitro solvent, no results, it is plated.
    Still it is only 45 euros so no big deal if exist or not, I was told it was the spanish version and I took my chance!

    It looks like a paint job to me to.
    Now there,s a new one "the Osten Medal in gold"
    The sword on the reverse seems a little 'fat" towards the tip or is that just me.

    Never try & clean medals/awards. If they are real the damage is irrepairable. On zinc awards & nickle silver ones it removes years of patina,at the very least. Stewy

    IMO,the eagle appears to be wearing a helmet too. It may be just the pics,but i'm sceptical. Stewy
