    I watched this auction, there were no bidders. I am unfamiliar with the piece and curious as to what the members think about it. If it’s a copy, please explain how you know that. Thanks in advance!

    This is the RAO4 mit Schwertern Typ 5. The detail on the swords is quite soft and not well defined. I've never seen one with the huge ball suspension loop before. The reverse center is soft and the obverse central medallion is very poorly painted.


    Here is an original to compare.

    Someone told me that these fakes come out of China. A friend was at a market there and saw all kinds of fake orders. Most of them were Chinese warlord period orders. But there were also some German and Imperial Russian as well.
