Fake Capture of Budapest Award Certificate

Hi! I would like to have an opinion on this document, which is for a Capture of Budapest medal. I have the impression that the same signature is now used on brand new awards (honestly proposed as newly assigned) possibly from Umalatova. Due to this, I was a bit skeptical in considering this docuemnt as an original.
Your comments will be highly appreciated.
Thanks

Well, it's not Umalatova's signature if that's what you mean.

The whole composition appears to be from the WWII period and legitimate, however if it's a reprint I can't tell from the photo.

Re: Fake Capture of Budapest Award Certificate

Of course it is always difficult to evaluate paper documents from photographs, however it is important for me to know that the signature is credible and, in principle, the document could be original. Thanks for your opinion, desantnik.

Sergio,

It could be legitimate. You need to show the whole document for us to tell you for sure.

Re: Fake Capture of Vienna award document

The document serial number is out of alignment when compared to the example on the MONDVOR site. The rest looks fairly convincing so not sure whether this makes it a fake or not!

Fake "Capture Of" campaign medal documents

Gents,
Does anything stike you as odd or wrong about this Koenigsberg booklet, aside from the missing stamp?
