    Another unknown Chinese medal

    I am afraid there is a cottage industry of fakers in China admirably helped by Ebay who are not bothered about fakes being pedalled on their site (one only has to see the British medals to see the fraudulent abominations offered on the site). The Chinese fakers have already destroyed the native coin market I am waiting for their present pathetic efforts in medals to get really good and kill the market in Chine ODM. Pity more extreme methods of mediaeval tortures couldn't be imposed on the fakers by the Chinese regime. Paul
  2. As a star only it should be 2nd class. However if he has omitted the sash badge it would be Grand Cordon the stats are identical in both classes. Going stir crazy in St Thomas' hospitai. Paul
  3. There are several contemporary weddigen commemoratives which are available on the market at reasonably affordable prices. He was a superstar in Germany at the time. This piece is utter durchfall created by a faker of little ability. Paul
