Looks fine and original imo
If you have any concerns about items post photos on the site before you buy.
Sorry I donít like it, I may be wrong as there is no way I would class myself as an expert.
I donít like the pebbling effect of the back ground on both sides, you do get bubbling effect on zinc made pieces but not like this.
Also the outside ring is not even. And the detail of the sword ect doesnít look good.
As I say wait for other opinions
Thank you for your opinion.
I was not a member of this forum when I bought this item, but it will prove extremely useful in the future.
Glad I joined...
Sorry, but I must concur with Rod.

I appologise for the bad info,i thought it was just in poor condition.
Hi Brian and welcome to the forum.
Don't let this minor set back put you off. There are many fine and original examples of TR awards out there. On this occasion you were unlucky. Ask questions of the members here who will all be willing to guide you through those first forays into TR collecting!
Post things before you buy them and you will save yourself a bundle.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
I think the details on the wreaths, front and back, are very weak. The "2" in 1942 looks odd. And is there a third bump on the helmet by the split pin, but not a third on the reverse.
You win some...... I actually got it at a reasonable (I thought) price, so It could have been worse.
It seemed a professional website but it has now dissapeared. Just goes to show...
Never noticed you were a new member, welcome.
I am sure we all have some stinkers in our collections, I know I have. As you say we live and learn.
Thereís always someone on here who can spot a dodgy piece whatever it is. I can only spot the easy ones unfortunately.
Here is one of mine which I think is good for comparison. I notice another one of mine has an uneven outside ring as well which has got me wondering.
