Re: Fake "Defense of" Campaign Medals

Hello. It's me again... :rolleyes:
What's your opinion on this Leningrad? To me, it looks a very nice T1a example (original, I would say).
Thank you
cheers

Re: Fake "Defense of" Campaign Medals

It looks very convincing ! It is the variation with the cut-up horizon. :thumbsup

I know only three Leningrad variations with short wall.

short bajonett, straight bag flap, with longer grip of the sickle (reverse)
- 7 dots in the building, bag of the right soldier touching the rim
- 8 dots in the building, bag of the right soldier touching not the rim

- long bajonett, curved bag flap, with longer grip of the sickle (reverse)

best regards
Andreas

P.S. I learned that there are 7 different variations with short wall.

Re: Fake "Defense of" Campaign Medals

I am not convinced by the hammer handle. Maybe it is just too faded, the medal shows quite some wear. The ring has been badly re-soldered, IMHO.
