I think you are right.
I am agreeing with Harry. The document is almost certainly a modern fake and the accompanying medal looks suspicious as well. Not a Bad fake-but the quality just doesn't look to be there.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
At first glance, I would say that the ribbon and possibly the Prague Castle bar seem OK, but better images are needed.
Edit: Original examples of this award do not seem to have quite the sharpness of many other period awards. That is not to say that this one is genuine though.
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.

Not totally clear, but the eagle's face looks a bit dicey, not much detail on it judging by the picture at least. Also, the man on the left looks to be wearing a mask rather than a plain expression.
From these pictures, I would keep my money firmly in the bank. I'm not seeing anything that is looking good.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Its the classic mask fake.
the ribbon is fake, that´s for sure.... and the rest hv to be the same...
By the way... guys... I bought the sudeteland medal WITHOUT the ribbon (cheap)... does anyone know where can I buy JUST THE RIBBON, PLS????

King regards, Fernando
