Cased KVK1 opinions needed..

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I need some opinions on this cased KVK1 w/s. My concern is with the pin it just doesn't look right to me, from what i can see it's mm 50. but i can't be sure. These are the only pictures i have right now. Any opinions would be helpful and thanks for looking....

The Case is absolutely 100% original.

I wonder if Gordon has some comments on the KVK medal itself.

The pin could be a replacement, but not original to this KVK medal.

I'd agree the case is definitely OK. The Cross may well be OK too but close-up scans of the obverse would be needed to be sure. I think that the pin has been replaced. Its the wrong shaped pin for a "50" and it looks like it has had to be filed thinner near the top to fit into the hinge block.

Given the quality of some of the fake KVK1s that have appeared recently, definitely one that would need a bit more investigation.
