Re: Fake Partisan Medals

Hi guys, are these good or bad? My guess is bad, but I'm new to this hobby so...

Kr, Thomas

Pics are from the dealer so this is the best.

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

Thomas,

This is the type of medal that you DO NOT even consider buying from pictures of such quality.

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

From appearances I can almost guarantee both are bad.

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

fpicoli,

The level of fakes of the Partisan medal has reached such a high level of quality, that from such small pictures, I can only say: it looks like a partisan medal 1st class.
Please post lager, sharp pictures of the front and the back, cropping them as close to the medal as possible.

Marc

fpicoli,

Any chance of seeing something like what I posted below (or even larger ;))?

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

I'm trying again to provide better pictures.
But, the forum image 50kb size limitation is making it a bit difficult.
What about these ones?

Regards

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

For the higher 100kb image size I would advise participating in the forum, as all users with 140+ posts get a 100kb image size limit. Of course if you do not wish to wait for the 100kb/140+ posts an image limit of 120kbs is available to all subscribed members. For $20 you can vastly improve your questionable item's clarity.

I have a bad feeling about this one.

- Your variation is with a rim avers and no point at the grip of the sickle reverse.

Compare the lettering of the medals. Left yours and right a good one.

All the letteres are smaler. Hammer is different and so on....

Re: Fake Partisan Medals

Partisan post 309:

When I had this medal in hand I found the ring soldered at the top of the medal very strange.

The ring looked to me as it was made out of one part (endless ring).
Can you confirm that?

Here is a picture to compare. Some details of the medal I like and some not.


best regards
Andreas
