    I don't even have any words. Just no... I don't like this one.

    I hope I am not wrong, that would make me look like a big fool, but in my eyes, this one is no good.
    Best Regards

    Not original, I'm afraid: The edges and surfaces look uneven and crude, the corners of the arms of the Swastika are too rounded, the letters of the "TREUE DIENSTE IN DER" part of the inscription are too tall and off-center, the runes on the ribbon are too plump...

    One word --- Crap !

    Incorrect material, wrong colour, lack of toning, poorly cast
    with soft details, fake ribbon, etc, etc.........
