Hello i bought a Romanian victory medal from a seller on Ebay who said it was bought by him as a genuine medal from a dealers auction and was an unofficial version made in France.

I would like other peoples opinion on this medal as it does not look like any of the examples I have seen on this section of the forum.

I would like to post pictures but I am unsure of how to do this, can anyone explain in simple terms how I can upload the pictures.

Thank you

Hello I think I have worked out how to get my pictures of the Romanian victory medal onto this thread. I would be greatfull if someone could tell me if it is a genuine 'unoficial' version or just a fake. Thank you

Thank you for your reply Graham. Am I correct in thinking that you mean it is a Fake as the seller said it was an 'Unoficial type 1' medal. I have looked at the type 1 versions shown on the forum and I can see some diferances especially around the neck and head. The thickness of the axe shaft on the reverse is also suspect.

Thanks for your thoughts.

frankguzzi, there are a number of differences between the one you have posted and an 'Unofficial Type 1'. As you have correctly stated the head and neck being a couple of the clearest. There are also a number of other differences(the right foot, the right forefinger and the clothing around the chest to name a few). Sorry, but I do not believe it to be an 'Unofficial Type 1" or any other 'Unofficial' medal I have seen.

    • 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.
