    Hi

    I am hopefully looking to sell this case (as I have no medal to go with it) but wanted to make sure it’s 100% genuine before listing.

    Is anybody able to assist/confirm?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    It's a bit tatty and not worth much but looks legit. I'd be surprised if you can sell it for anything more than a few quid but fair play if you can. I'd be more tempted to get a cross to put in it and keep it.

    Is the color of the case black or dark blue? I can't really tell from the images..

    Mmm the colour does look like black when it should be dark blue and the manufacturers printing looks a little rough but it looks like a good one.
    I do have crosses in worse looking boxes.

    I only have the picture of the makers name of that box:

    Some cases are very dark in appearance, almost black.

    Thanks for the replies guys. If I look at it really up close under direct light it does have a Dark blue/grey tinge to it, so possibly what you’re referring to.

    RE getting a real medal, I was actually sold a fake mother’s cross in gold some years ago (when I started collecting and I was far less educated). I think it might have been the seller who is now ‘SpandauaMilitariaShop’, so Lesson learned The clearly put a fake in a genuine case to dupe the buyer and unfortunately it worked...Luckily I have more sense now, at least when it comes to collecting!

    If it doesn't have much value then I might hang onto it and one day come across a genuine example, at least then it would have a proper home. Is it only the Gold example which went in this specific case?

    Cheers

    The fake cross in question...

    [Apologies, I can't seem to rotate the images correctly, though I suppose it doesn't matter since its a dud...]

    Are you sure it's a dud?
    If you can see some texture beneath the blue enamel, it has a good chance of being an original.
    Try different light sources.

    Hi Ralph

    Thanks for your reply. I have tried to get sight of this textured part from all sorts of light & angles but I think it's a fake as it just reflects, almost like good quality acrylic.

    Also these 'lines' between the words on the front of the medal I have not seen on genuine examples another reason I think its a dud. What do you think?

    Cheers
