    Sorry it is a fake.

    Poor detail and incorrect fittings.

    Cheers, Ade.

    the back fitting looks very off-centered, the eagles feathers arent right, the talons of the eagle are not detailed correctly, the 1941-1942 are not detailed correctly, and the detail of the Krim "land" shape is not correct either, it is lacking much detail. Just a few details I noticed right away. I am kind of new at studying badges/medals/orders and I know it helps me when I see some1 point out the flaws in a fake piece, so I thought I would give it a shot.

    Hi Dave, I never recognised it as the same item not having seen a close up before. Not keen on it, sorry.

    Cheers, Ade.
