General Comments and discussion about fakes

Recommended Posts

Another medal for assessment of originality... This time a Partisan of the GPW, first class in silver, apparently a Variant 2 according to Mondvor. If I compare this medal to the sure original shown on Mondvor site, I notice some differences in the letters of the avers, for instance the first "O" and the "ч" of ОтечеÑтвенной, as well as the last letters of the word "войны", which seem larger than normal, but this could be flattening due to wear. 

 

Thank you for leaving your comments.

Thanks Sergio, your words are encouraging, but I still have some doubts on that partisan medal. I see some difference in the lettering of the obverse which make me nervous. 

Your badge is very nice, and looks convincing. I am not an expert on these, I have no idea whether it would be worth being faked. However, I like its patina.

Hello,

I am curious with this badge. I think it is some kind of tourist creation but I have seen a few of these around and wonder what information you have on them?

Thank you

This is a fake (phantasy piece) the real ones have a different inscription on the lower red ribbon (not KGB CCCP)

best regards

Sorry but me again. I have seen this badge and wonder your thoughts on it. I have been told it is OGPU to celebrate 10 years of the revolution?

Yes it is. But I have no clue about the originality.
