    It certainly is interesting. Does it look to anyone else that the 'STEN' in 'IMOSTEN' looks bigger than the 'IMO"? Certainly compared to my Eduard Görlach & Söhne example it is.

    That's a nice example Glenn

    I might be wrong but i don't think these are heavily faked.

    Both very nice examples. Oddly enough, even though these medals are plentiful and inexpensive, fakes are out there. There must be a market for those who would buy a fake for US$25 instead of paying $45 for an original.

    The fakes tend to be poor and easy to detect

    Very strange that people will make fakes of relatively inexpensive item. I did not know about that.

    And also what about the helmet? Because the bottom of it is a little bit curved?
