Re: Fake Saving Drowning Medals

Based on these, I am unsure. I don't like the branch, but it could be lighting.

Re: Fake Saving Drowning Medals

@Alexei

The gold plating is almost untouched (about 95%), so I had to darken the images, because of the strong reflection. That maybe the reason for the strange contrasts between worn and unworn areas.

Would it be ok to sent you the images via email in their original size ?

With best regards,

Jens*
