Re: Fake "Defense of" Campaign Medals

Thanks Ctahhr

Thanks for your opinion. I'm curious as to what gives it away, what should be the correct size? Does the design give it away? Can you direct me to an original one on this site?

All the best

Thomas

Should I be worried about the eyelet being soldered a bit to the left and not exactly over the "HY" in "оборону"? The ring hasn't been resoldered.
HiThomas,
personally I don't see problems, for me, your Odessa is perfectly genuine.

Here is a link to the Mondvor site and an exposition on the Defense of Odessa Medal: http://www.mondvor.narod.ru/MObOdes.html.

Thanks Bill

Made a comparison and design and detail looks like 100% match. Can you explain to me if the webpage you linked to Mondvor, is that an official mint site showing the official design or a privately made webpage?

Re: Fake "Defense of" Campaign Medals

I don't know if it is an officially sanctioned mint site or simply an exposition of the concerted efforts of numerous named Russian collectors. I have corresponded with one of the owners of the site in the past.

Re: Fake "Defense of" Campaign Medals

It is not mint's site. It's collectors' made and they used to post materials from visitors who submitted them (see their photogallery). Also, I think that there has been no update in a long time on the site.
It is, however, a good source of information... The information that fake manufacturers pay close attention to as well.

I am no expert, so I am not saying that this medal is good or not. It is just good to keep in mind that fakers do learn new things as well.

Hello, I am wondering about this Sebastopol. Is it okay?
