    Default SS-Dienstauszeichnung 3.Stufe (8 Jahre).

    G'day all,
    I posted some poor quality pics of this medal in my SS display thread and it was considered to be a bad one. I have now taken some better quality pics and I was just hoping to get some final opinions before I try to return it. I have read on the axis forum that there was a late variation of this medal which had 6 bars on the ribbon tie instead of the 5 that are usually seen and thought it was worth a final appraisal. I appreciate your time and effort boys and in no way by posting this thread am I doubting the knowledge of those of you that have already commented on this medal, it is simply that these photos are much better and may give a different opinion. Thanks once again,

    Dave

    Hopefully this link thingy worked out ok, about halfway down the page there is a paragraph on a variant of the medal. Cheers, Dave.

    The suspension ring alone would be enough for me to question authenticity. The only originals I know of have a pointed profile, not a round wire section ring.

    Thanks Adrian, it was worth asking the question.

    Sorry Dave, this is a 1970's British made fake. Points that are bad, wreath and wreath binder and suspension jump ring.

    See this thread from last week:

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade, I just wanted to be sure. Once again you blokes have saved me a heap of money, thank you all very much. Fortunately the bloke I got it from is very good and is quite prepared to take it back. Thank you all once again,
    Cheers, Dave.

    As Adrian says if the suspension ring isnt bevelled I would be suspicious
