    Spanish Morocoo Forgeries


    Recommended Posts

    I hope this helps other collectors.. I recently purchased two Spanish Morocco Campaign 'medals' from and ebay seller using the name bulphalera. I did take a chance really which I now regret.

    One has a bronzed appearance with the clasp Melilla, the second silvered with crossed red stripes upon the ribbon.

    Both of the so-called medals are cast forgeries with file marks on the rim, soapy appearance & blow holes and edge flaws. Both are coated over what I would term 'pot metal'. There are

    a couple of scratches on the bronze coloured piece showing the  bright soft metal beneath.  The green ribbon is nicely watered with good colour

    I am in the process of trying to get a refund through ebay.

    The seller is adamant of course that the items are '100% genuine' Also, the seller has re-listed the Melilla medal - which is identical to mine, I mean identical..


    Hope others will spread the information to stop others falling into the trap.
