    Hi Tietze

    I am not one of the experts but they look very good particularly in a grouping!

    I would like an 8 year as my next purchase. I bought a 4 year a couple of weeks ago and as soon as I get a decent camera I will be sending pics to make sure its the real thing!

    I fear the 8 year is a repro sorry

    Given that the Westwall was instituted in 1939. I find it difficult to believe that the soldier was in the SS before service on the walls??

    John,

    the medals are in the correct order of merit as presribed by formal regulations:

    1 - iron cross II
    2 - War merit cross - with or without swords
    3 - Social welfare
    4 - Russian Front
    etc
    etc
    9 WH service medals
    10 Other service medals - inc SS
    etc

    then west wall should be last in respect of this grouping

    So is not an indicator of anything being wrong with the 8 year medal.

    The quality of the medal is good - certainly compared to other fakes correctly identified on earlier posts tot he forum.

    i'll try to get a close up of the medal to post.

    Thanks

    Exactly what i was going to point out - that the medals are put in order of importance, not by order in which they were acquired.

    There are a few areas of concern for me, but that is just my opinion. It counts for nothing

    Details on the SS medal seem too soft. Stewy S

    The "SS" on the reverse doesn't seem to run paralell,but it could be just the picture angle. Stewy S
