    Looks good, and I hope it was reasonably priced. The 'War Merit Medal' was awarded
    to civilians - it should not be too hard to find an original ribbon for it, and also
    an original 'Ostfront Medal' as well.........

    According to one source, this medal was awarded mainly for work in munitions factories.

    My nephew bought one recently - $5 without a ribbon - however it was lightly
    corroded in spots. Very common, these are normally found for $20-$30
    in excellent condition with correct ribbon.........

    Hardly ever seen faked. Can you show a pic?

    I reckon these are too cheap to really bother about faking too much. I got my mint example still in its packet for $35 or thereabouts.
