Need help with this Order of Lenin

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am interested in this type6 Lenin as it is one of the less common post-WW2 Lenins. The seller sent me some photos, but I am still not sure if it is genuine. Because I only find two other photos of Lenin in this type. Could someone give me some advice about this Lenin? Is it common that the serial number deviated to the left side?

Thank you.

Nick will know about this for definitive, but the rear of the Lenin almost looks like gilded brass (don't be alarmed until an expert chimes in, could be the lighting etc of the picture, plus I'm no expert ! :D )

You also want to double check which type of beard Lenin has, if this type is common with Pointy beard or Smooth beard etc :)

Be especially careful when purchasing this kind of order, lots of fakes out there :D so definitely a good idea asking here.

Hi JapanX,

And you can compare:

Nice Manieren you have dear Uwe! :lol:

P.S. It was slightly unusual for me to observe watermarked photo of fake order. That's all. It was a simple observation.

Hate to say it, but those are some scary reproductions... how do you spot these? What is the red flag that gives them away as reproductions?

Hi JapanX,

there is no offense, just my (relatively :unsure:) simple question.

By the way, I hate it, when people use my pictures without my permission, originals or copies/fakes.

Hi Paul,

these are good copies, compared with some other copies of Lenin orders in my collection.

The main difference is the weight. Gold and Platinum complete with ribbon bar 46g, this copy 25g.

Hi, would anyone be willing to be so kind and show some quality copies to avoid  of the "good" Lenin?

 

Thanks in advance!
