Fake KGB table medal?

This one just looks too sloppy to be real. "Special Communications" - any thoughts?

Re: Fake KGB table medal?

I'm starting to find more of these "KGB Table Medals" that look odd. Here's another one.

Re: Fake KGB table medal?

Phillip, the lack of detail would worry me as well. Looks like cast copies?

If it was a medal that somebody wore every day the less than crisp state may be explained by over zealous cleaning but I haven't come across anybody who over cleaned table medals.

Phillip,

I agree with Simon, they definitely look cast.

Re: Fake KGB table medal?

Thank you both. I suppose that I should have guessed that anything with a sword and shield would eventually be copied (post #2) and I'm not even sure if the one in the first post ever really existed until recently (if you get my meaning);).

Very sad and frustrating because the original version of the medal in post #2 is a well-known one and not exactly cheap.:(
