    Not the best photos to be honest, but from what i see, i like it. This example would have been issued in 1943!

    I concur, an authentic Order of the Red Star. It appears the obverse center medallion has been polished.

    Louis,

    I concur with the others. Looks 100% correct to me.

    Original star with heavily polished obverse. But why do we always have to give opinions based on shitty pics I wonder......

    Marcel,

    At the risk of being a little too forward. Maybe as a new member they're still learning the ropes of posting images??? Me personally, I'm still a little behind the curve on technology. In fact my hopes are to post a grouping on this site in the future that's totally fake and contrived. Just purchased it. Hopefully my review will keep someone from making the same mistake. Point being, even though I'm reading guides and instructions on the forum on how to post images...might not be successful my first time out. Sometimes it takes a little practice to get good at something. Just a thought.

    Thanks!

    I know Gerry that making pics is not always easy. It depends not just on own skills but a lot depends on camera or phone. But everybody knows that blurry, unsharp,disformed, too dark, too light, too far pics lose details which are so necessary in collecting. Look at the first photo, the star is not even full on the picture. On the left is a lot of space and on the right the tip of the star's leg is missing because it doesn't fit on the pic.
    In all fairness, with this star it was still relatively easy despire the shitty pics but I've seen much worse pics from much more expensive awards and still people expect to get proper opinions....
    And furthermore Gerry, post those items! Everybody is always willing to help here when possible
