Dear All,
I just was offered this czech VM, but since the features are not realy crisp, I'm not sure about it's genuinity. Is this a cast copy?
I would be very thankfull for your advice!

Hi.

The medal is from the same seller that offers the Portuguese medal ??The ribbon is from the same lot.

It is another "modern reproduction". Note the "signature of the sculptor" details coarse, among other details in the date 1914 - 1918 not very clear. Definitely not good.

Cheers

Hi Gents,

In post # 62 I showed a French-made reproduction of the Czech vic with ball suspension and the Arthus Bertrand triangle mark (incorrectly identified in the post as Chobillon) and BRONZE on the edge. My latest acquisition is this version, also with ball suspension, but with no markings on the edge ...

reverse.

As bought it was rather dirty and had dark patches on the reverse. I cleaned it with a non-toxic, non-acidic, non-corrosive, non-caustic, and non-abrasive cleaner, which took off a reddish tint and showed some verdigris under the dark patches. I'll treat those next. It had a modern ribbon as bought, and I'm sourcing a French ribbon for it.

Any thoughts on a maker?

Bill

French Medal of the 1920s, this model, described as "reproduction" by A. Laslo, is rarer than the production models of Czechoslovakia. 

nice example!
