They are.
The odds are that finding a real one "out of the woodwork" and/or for a cheap price are astronomically high. If you got money and want one buy from a good dealer and pay the price. If you don't have money (like me) just dream about getting one.


But by the same token do your homework as once in a blue moon a great deal will come up. If you know what you're looking for, and utilize the myriad internet resources correctly, you can become a savy collector. :cool:

Hi

I think this one is a fake concerning the uneven dots on the obverse, crude serial number, straight mint mark and generally lacking detail. Thank you and with best regards,

Jens

Re: Fake Orders of Suvorov

This was bought 25 years ago in Russia, and the person who bought it did not pay a lot of money for it. To me it looks obviously fake, because I have never seen another Suvorov that looks like this one. (I've been looking for about 3 days now, so someone with a little more experience maybe has seen one that looks like this.)

Anyways, I think it's odd to find it with all these other medals that I have, since the entire collection of 40 or so pieces probably cost less than $100 to purchase in the mid-80's. These were being bought along with all sorts of other stuff, and the buyer was not discerning. So, why fake a Suvorov at all if you're just going to sell it for a few bucks on the street? Maybe it was an attempt at a fake that someone gave up on and just gave away, more or less. I have no idea.

I have dozens of other pieces to photograph, but this one I figured I'd submit now since it's a bit more interesting than the others.
