    I think this is a Spanish Star (Bronze) AKA Spanienkreuz - M.M.= "L/12" (made by Juncker) on back of medal

    Can anybody confirm if this is authentic?

    If so, what might the value be in this condition?

    I'm not well up on these crosses but from the pics provided I would say it's not an original example.
    The pin is unlike any I've seen on a Juncker made cross and also the obverse arms look strange, the area of stippling appears to bulge in a way I've not noticed on original crosses.

    It would probably go for about 1200 USD/980 EUR/820 GBP if it were authentic. That's what I usually see examples with swords going for.

    But something doesn't sit right with me about it either.Agree with Adrian about the bulging, and the back looks somehow too... smooth?

    Just suspicions though, I'm no expert.
