    Exclamation U-Boat Bade Marked "53" and 25 Year Faithful Service Cross: Authentic Pieces?

    Hi, guys. I saw these two pieces for sale online and was curious what some of you might think about their authenticity. I'm skeptical of the U-Boat badge as it looks somewhat different than I a verified original (by Juncker) that I compared it to. Specifically, the breast of the eagle is different and the back clasp does not have a wider bar like the original. On the reverse it is marked "53" The 2nd faithful service cross looks good compared to the pictures I have in my Lumsden book and one that I saw online. Apparently the picture quality is bad as this is the 25 year silver medal and it has come out looking gold. I saw this 2nd piece for $40 and thought it'd be a good buy if original. I'm also curious if anyone would and/or knows how to safely clean a ribbon as this one has some sticker residue on the front of it.

    Thanks for any thoughts on these two pieces.

    Hi Adam, the U Boat is indeed bad.

    The 25 year faithful service medal is good.

    Cheers, Ade.
