That`s how "Korrez" looked like
That`s how Varyag was outgunned!
Check this out guys.
This medal was on sale at one of the Baldwin auctions.
Nick, do you think it's real? I have seen several copies and from the image on this site it is not clear enough to be 100% certain either way.
All the best

Same feelings here ...
My apologies for reactivating this old thread, but this is what came up when I was searching in Google.
I recently came across a medal that fits the description of what was determined to be a replica in this thread. However, I found a catalog online from Baldwin's Auctions in the UK that indicates that even if it was struck at a later date, it may still be of value (approx. $600+).
So, I was hoping to get some additional feedback. I have attached images of the item in my possession. And, here is a link to the Baldwin's catalog that I found online: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=13&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwj13PnKt-7VAhULhlQKHfPgDn4QFghZMAw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.baldwin.co.uk%2Fmedia%2Fcms%2Fauction-archive%2Fa316%2F07%20BALDWINS%20Argentum%20Auction%20-%20November2016%20-%2005%20-%20MILITARY%20MEDALS%20%2B%20BANKNOTES.pdf&usg=AFQjCNEbEfAu_elkewxymePjOIUP158GTA
See page 7 of the PDF that the link will open up.
There is definitely more indication online that what I have is a replica. Example, this looks like mine: http://www.warhobby.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=194
So I suppose the real question is: Do you think Baldwin's got duped? Or, is there potential value in my medal? I admit that theirs is in much better condition than my own, but what are your thoughts?
Much appreciation for your help. I never knew there was an entire community devoted to this kind of stuff. I just happened to get my medals in a lot of coins I bought, posted in a coin forum and someone directed me here. I will create a separate thread for another item that is unidentified at the moment.
