    Default Winterschlacht Im Osten / Good or Bad One???

    Hello, I would like one of these "Ostfront" medals, and was offered this one for $50US. I have read here, there are fakes floating around. Is this a genuine medal? It has no maker mark on the ring. I can also get one with a number 15, a little better for $65, and also another very good condition maker marked zinc medal, with the paper envelope for $85US.

    What do the other members think about the pricing for/and the choices available?? I do not mind one that is not maker marked, I just want to make sure it is real, and not a forgery.

    I was also offered a black steel wound badge I have no pics of. It is in good condition, and has about 85-90% of the black finish remaining. It also has an "88" maker mark on the back. Is the "88" a legit maker of wound badges??

    Regards, Steve

    Hi Steve, the medal is good.

    The wound badge sounds good too, but please post pics to be 100% sure.

    Prices sound OK to me, but I don't follow prices too closely.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade, your up early on a Sunday. Are you having your morning tea?

    Thanks, looked OK to me too, but no expert. Is 88 a valid maker of wound badges? I know the fellow good who has them, and he will return anything I buy from him.

    $100 for both sounds fair, but again no expert.

    Regards, Steve

    Hi Steve, yes, tea cup is in hand. I am off to a show in 30 mins hence the un-Godly hour for a Sunday.

    Yes, "88" is legitimate known maker.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hot tea sounds good. Good luck at the show, maybe you will find new treasures.

    Thanks for the 88 info.

    Regards, Steve
