    You're correct but I have no idea if it's original.

    This is made of the same alloy as the medals posted yesterday 10/10/11. I don't know what's all in the mix, but it has some copper. It's too difficult to get fine details in brass for medals. Certainly not original, I noticed medals of this alloy started showing up on Gunbroker about five or six years ago.

    Metal is copper (we call it red copper but I'm not sure about the English term) and as far as I know none of the DK parts were made of copper. Engraving is very sharp so it is not a vax copy or casted. I belive it can be just a test version or something like that made by silversmith who produced DK-s. I will try to make some more detailed pics of the laurel leaves and 1941 engraving.
