Re: Fake Partisan Medals

I like it but I have to agree with shocktrooper.

Just for my learning experience: where do you actually look for through a microscope?

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

Guys, thanks for answers,
but seems to be a fake "Capral", almost perfect, but looking good, there are differences...

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

Well spoted! I checked mine and indeed they are different than the first one you've shown.

How about this one ...?

@USSR:

under a microscope an original will ever look different as a fake; but to know the differences, you have to examine a lot of genuine specimens. Even coined fakes will show less detail than genuine ones. Cast medals will be recognized at the spot, because of all the gas bubbles and FAR less detail than genuine pieces.

With best regards!

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

It looks good but I'm careful since you justly corrected me before ;-)

Btw, What kind of microscope do you use?

Hi USSR,

no problem - it`s the socalled "tiger stripe" - variation. There was some error when producing the metal chips for the coining process; two different kinds of metal were fused, but not very well; you can see the one metal producing dark tiger-like stripes all over the medal due to it´s patina. I do like it very much somehow :)

I do use a Krüss optronic device, which unfortunately ran out of production some years ago. But there are newer generation ones of the same manufacturer (in Germany); also very good, of course.

Some more (quite crappy) images of a questionable partisan medal - nevertheless I would be glad, if I could get some opinions on this one.

Thank you!

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

I don't see any obvious problems but as you said yourself: the pictures are of low quality...
