Dear fellow collectors

This item has come up for sale at an auction and I intent on buying it. The higher grades of the MVK are a minefield so to be safe I would like to hear your opinions on this einzelspange. Thanks in advance

Kind regards LaurentiusIMG-20170717-WA0041.thumb.jpg.c56fa1b4e45f05c87fe09e290e3013f6.jpg

Dear Spolei

Could you tell me what is wrong with the medal, is it the crown, or the details? Thanks in advance

Hi Laurentius,

Ignoring the Crown for now, the rear medallion of the medal and the swords could pass as an early example from Deschler, but the front medallion looks like one from the modern copies that regularly appear on a well known auction site.

As far as the Crown is concerned it is distinctly dodgy.

Having said that the pictures aren't great, but it isn't a medal I would touch.

Hope this is of help.

Best regards

Pete

Dear Padro

I am most graftefull for your response, I will keep it in mind next time I'm going to buy a MVK. But I must ask, to which auctionsite are you referring?

Kind regards Laurentius
