    Hi Dorker, yes indeed, it is a fake.

    Note the back to front "N" in the word Division.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Notice also the casting marks and the poor detail.

    This is not an original German issue. Note the large suspension ring mount.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is a genuine Spanish version of the medal, the ball mount suspension is typical of Spanish awards and medals which carry a ribbon, as on the example in post #1.
    These Spanish made versions were made from the inception of the award right up to the early 1990's in a variety of coloured metals, silver/gold/bronze...............see this thread for more Spanish made replacement awards for Blue Division veterans
    Blue Division Vets awards....................
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
