Am I right to assume this was one more of them?

I wouldn't call the winner Glückspilz :whistle:

Спасибо! Glad I wasn't too daringly there...

Oh, and I sincerely hope this one was better?

:love:

My question was meant seriously... please, could anyone tell me, was that a fine example? They look all almost the same to me...

Not that I doubt your judgement (I don't), but how does one determine that they are fakes? I have some WW I era St. George Crosses bought years ago and they are all crudely made. The thing about your fake examples that betray them to me is their newly minted shine.
