    Guys, as always, the answers can often be found in the forum achives.

    Hi Adrian,

    The name 'Bubble' fake comes from the coarser finish of the background 'stippling' than that seen on originals of the medal, note the differences as shown against the one Bob has posted.
    The name 'Hybrid' fake is used because the medal itself shows remarkable similarities in the detailing, lettering & suspension loop to the Deschler types, but the eyelet is in the style of the Petz & Lorenz type SS medals, it's neither one or the other, it's a mix, and therefore bad. This fake first appeared in the 70's and is pretty good for the time as it fooled a lot of collectors and dealers, hence it's re appearance as time (and collectors) move on.

    Regards, Ned.
    Thanks Ned,

    It's good to have an explanation behind the collector coined names for these things.
    Best Regards,

    Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
