Just picked this up on eBay,

You can see where the idea for the 'helmet and leaves' design of the WW2 Ostmedaille came from.  :)

I have my doubts because these are widely faked to a very high degree and routinely sold by "the Club" and its minions. Can you show close-up details of the dates and also the reverse, please? Also, what was the name of the seller?

Should it look like this ??

Is this one yours? Also, who was seller? This is important? The picture you originally posted from eBay with the marble background and poor lighting is typical of those regularly posted by the group of fakers who originated in Aaachen, but who are in other locals like Cologne.

Rest easy ......................... I think I fell for one of the Aachen items. :(

It has still to arrive.

The good one I posted is from another site.

Another lesson for me !!

Thanks for your advice.

I hope they give you your money back. They aren't exactly known to be very receptive to refunds.

The only way to get them to take a return and refund your money is to leave very bad and explicit feedback.

I'm not bothering with trying to get a refund.

The cross didn't cost much more than the postage !!  ;)

Just one for me to put down to experience.
