Fake Orders of Lenin

Hi everyone! I picked up a Lenin with a booklet quite some time ago, and I was hoping the experts here could give me their opinion on whether it's good or not. I'll I'll post pix of the booklet in another post, but here's Lenin in all his glory! Thanks all!

Re: Fake Orders of Lenin

This is the booklet that came with the Lenin I have. Frankly, I know nothing about how to spot a fake with these, so I hope the photos help. If I need to capture something specific, please let me know and I'll shoot it again. I would appreciate it if someone could advise if this is the correct booklet for the Order, and if it looks original. Thanks again everyone!

Re: Fake Orders of Lenin

Willum,

Your Order of Lenin is :thumbsup

Regarding the booklet, I am no so sure, the handwriting looks unusual. Can you please post a complete scan of page on which the awards are listed, without cutting anything out.

Marc

Re: Fake Orders of Lenin

Willum,

I don't like the booklet at all. I believe that it was bleached of its original entries and that the OL was then written in :thumbsdown

Re: Fake Orders of Lenin

Thanks Marc,

That's too bad... I was hoping it was original to the Order.:(

I don't see any discoloration, but I know the folks making up booklets are pretty good at it. Ah well, at least the Order is good, and I got it at a great price before the big raise in prices of Orders and gold.

I see these on the big auction site for 5-6 K...which I think is crazy, but I guess somebody must be paying those prices. I could get a decent used car for that! lol

Thanks again. /Jim

Re: Fake Orders of Lenin

I'm a noob, but from these images, I think you might be on the negative side, his head looks a little bit deformed, eyes a little bit wrong etc, at least on the last image.

But wait for further replies!!

Re: Fake Orders of Lenin

I find it very strange that people always have vast amounts of money for fakes but rarely for the real deal....

Pay for a fake with fake money?
