Re: Fake "Liberation of" Campaign Medals

Looks good overall. Some slight discrepencies on the font on the reverse; specifically the "M" and the "A".
And what's the mark on the lower left, just a ransom heavy ding?

And this part is only my opinion but if I'm buying a WW2 (or slightly thereafter) medal, especially a T1 Do, Lo, Co, I want an original suspension and ribbon. That's what floats my boat.

Thanks Eric. I think it is just a ding on the back, I hope its not a sign of casting.
