    Default SS-Dienstauszeichnung 3.Stufe (8 Jahre), opinions please

    Hello, I have seen this item for sale at a good price, I think. It has the tear-drop suspension ring. The detail looks a little soft but it could just be well worn as you can tell by the ribbon, also I have seen that originals have 5 strands at the bottom of the wreath which this one also has. What are your opinions on it?
    Thanks, Glen.

    Hello Nick, could you tell me why please. Is it because the lack of detail eg around the formation of the '8'?
    Thanks, Glen.

    Soft detail, poorly shaped ss runes, the jump ring lacks the bevelling and the distinct lack of stippling Glen

    Compare the shape of the letters in the wording to that of an original too. Loads of differences.

    That ribbon looks artificially aged too.
