    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    The Tapferkeits- und Erinnerungsmedaille der Spanischen "Blauen Division" should be made of zink, if German made. There are also Spanish made replacements.

    Clear pics taken in daylight are best. But I would say this is a copy. Note the poor detail and modern ribbon.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Welcome to the forum and thank you for posting.

    I agree with Ade, it looks like a very poor casting which has resulted in the soft details.

    Please post the rest of the collection you purchased so we can see if they're ok.

    I agree with what has been said. I have been looking for one for a while and originals are very hard to come by
