    Nothing wrong with that one & I tend to agree with Mike (steinar). Stewy

    Are these medals being faked? I thought that since they are so cheap fakers wouldn't have any interest in them.

    I have only seen one fake before. It was filled with holes and looked like something someone cast in their garage. Of course companies that make reproduction medals for reenactors and museums make these, but they too aren't much good (the best one is here: Kelleys Military Russian Front Medal)

    I saw fakes of these 25 to 30 years ago. Admitted they were junk lead bendy things but still fake. Never fall into the trap of thinking cheap and common is not faked.

    Back then tinnies were "safe", but not now...

    Ost's have always been faked to some degree. But as these wonderful designed medals become more popular due partly to the fact there are some interesting & diverse makers being uncovered. Fakers are becoming aware of that fact. Stewy

    Thanks for the replies guys. I guess reenacting is also a major factor that everything is being reproduced. Even the cheap stuff.
