    Yes, more than 90 % are mass produced and from this ones again more than 90 % are die struck/pressed.
    If interested...i think end of this year, beginning next year there will be a book out about this theme.

    Time marches on! Technology changes over time. Modern methods are a bit different than the way things were done in the 1930-1945 period. Modern fakes are made with a rubber mold by a casting method. The real ones were mostly made by pressing the silver/gold in metal dies. The tiny details of pressed rings are much sharper than can be had from a casting. Look at the teeth. Most of the cast ones don't really have teeth. The ancient Greeks used the lost wax method of casting metal. The sharp detail in their metal work came from handwork with tiny files. Look always for the tiny details that are a sure indication of quality.
