    What do you think of these three Ostmedailles ,
    When looking at them separately they look like good originals to me.
    But when I put them together their are small differences.
    Note the height of the helmets from the rim to the under side of the suspension ring.
    The one in the middle marked 60 I think is about 9mm and the others are about 8mm .
    Also the ribbons are different widths.
    I know its not much but has anyone else noticed little differences like these on theirs. Its just that i thought these were all made the same. Ive tried a search but come nothing about these differences.
    It might be nothing but I just had to ask. And sorry for the way i have photograph them I was just trying to show the helmets close together.
    The one on the left has a makers mark but i cant made it out.
    As always thanks for any help or opinions.

    Hi Rod, I'm not seeing any red flags from these pics but it would help if they could be photographed individually and also not at an angle. I would like to see a better shot of the one on the right to be sure.

    Hi Rod, they are all fine originals. Different makers will have subtle differences

    I've also noticed tiny differences in details depending on which maker it is. Nothing to worry about though.
    Nice medals

    All 3 are original in my eyes too.
    Small deviations that what you refer to is normal.
