I think you will find the black L/10 has all the hallmarks of a Carsten Staegemeier fake.
The die flaws on the helmet rim is the dead giveaway.
3 very nice badges.
do you have the same L/10 medall to compare? or a picture? I d like to see for myself.
Or is there anyone else on this forum who can show me such a medall from this maker?? Cant find it anywhere on the net...
