These have been faked on a massive scale.
I wont give the final verdict on your medal, but it looks very sharp and new.
I would be careful - if something sounds too good to be true.......you know the rest.
looks ok for me, very nice and clean example
it looked near mint to me. whats the average price for these in this condition? am not sure but am guessing this might not be a rare medal since they made 3 million of them?
I can not see anything wrongwith it.
True, i have 2 and i think every collection needs one with eastern front being huge part of ww2.
Looking for following WWII German items:
- anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
- entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
- forestry and hunting items,

They have been faked like all Third Reich decorations but not (as far as I know) on a huge scale. The example in the opening post is a good one IMO.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
