I have today received the NCO bar.
In the medals lot,was this golden military merit cross.
I know it is not original, but I would like to know if it is a modern copy
or one of the so-called "Ordenspange Stueck",so a replacement medal for the medals bar is.
Thanks, any opinion and comment is welcome.
Best regards, jannis

The crown is absolutely horrible and the details on the rest of it is sloppy.  Not something that I would expect to see from a European jeweler.

This is a very common, possibly the most common type of the MVK to appear on the market. It is my firm opinion those are, despite they're often offered as such, absolutely no old wearers' copies, but 1980s(?) so called museum copies by Göde (that's not Godet!), a German firm similar to The Franklin Mint. So, more or less, this is teleshopping stuff! On German ebay, they are sometimes even to be found with their original "certificates", like this one:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
