Fake Orders of Maternal Glory.

Hi,
I found this maternal glory 3rd class 1st variation, which I have never seen before. The missing wear and the soft surface makes me a little suspicious though. What do you think?

Re: Fake Orders of Maternal Glory

No mint mark and relief reverse suspenion, not too common, if its real it's nice! Especially if it's being sold for the same cost as a regular 3rd class!

It just looks like its been overly polished to me through, hence the softness. There are still traces of patina near the hammer and sickle.

I would think it could be ok, but lets wait for others with more experience :-)

Possible okay. I am not totally sure, but I like this one.

best regards

I like it too. It's possible the reverse was buffed down and a lower s/n added, but don't think so. The "mirror reverse" suspension is also a good sign for early issue pieces. The suspension alone can run quite a premium. Great find!

Hi all,

I got two maternal glory medals with the mirror reverse suspension. They look ok but don't match the serial numbers... Any idea?

Thanks!!
