    To the best of my knowledge they are original and they came from a trusted Russian acqauintance of mine.

    However, the red band on the 2nd class is not like any kind of medal ribbon I have seen before and seems more like cotton "tape" so I think it is a replacement. This doesn't bother me much as I doubt anyone trying to do this for less than genuine reasons would try to use actual medal ribbon.

    Regards

    Thanks for the comments guys. I was even more impressed with the piece in hand. As I understand it, judging by the serial number, this piece was probably awarded at some point in February April 1945, just before or during the battle for Berlin?

    I hope to get this researched soon, though by the site Ade linked, I'm not exactly sure what all the options mean. I may have to get some info from Auke about it to see what kind of results best cover the bases. I'm always interested to know the lineage of such things. As for the other pieces, I will probably shoot to get some of the 1985 examples, which are as you say quite cheap. I'd like to get a Red Star at some point too, which I think is also quite an attractive award.
