This piece here looks more correct for the color enamel used during the period. WW1 trough the late 1930's.

I too have heard a story that approxiamately 5 WW1 crosses with swords were either commissioned by King Carol or were strictly proof pieces and made by Henry Weiss around the 1938 date. These were silver, hallmarked, and gold gilt and were given unofficially by King Carol to some of his Generals. I do not know the full story.

At least part of the "story" is true. The following orders are both Weiss marked and in silver. I have also seen a 1916 First Class with swords that appears to be of 1930's vintage.

I need to correct part of this statement-the other 1916 First Class with swords was not Weiss marked.

[/QUOTE]This Japanese Order of Rising sun 6th class in this medalbar is post war model.
IN war period,This design is more smooth.

Good idea.

I think this topic should also include dubious, modern-made, medal bars, even if these bars are made using genuine awards.

Here is a dubious bar, somebody sent me this pic and asked for an opinion about its originality:

I think it's a modern-made one. The one near the Iron Cross is the japanese Order of the Rising Sun 4th class. ;)

This Order of rising sun is not 4th class,it's 6th calss,
This order was rare ones in Rumanian bar,but THis is not nothing.
Also,In bukarest,There were Japanese ambasay,MY grand father was military attache in this house in 1942-45.

It can't be considered a reproduction. But it's nicely made.

I have a "Medal for commercial and industrial merit", 1st Class, that i think it's a fake. I bought it years ago from a flea market. I made a photo of it next to a genuine 2nd Class of the medal.

This First class medal actually looks good. Probably made by someone other then the State Mint.

I have not seen any fakes of this medal on the market. It is not a high valued medal to be worth making a fake of and then to gold gilt it. The gilting on this medal also looks to be of the period. Sometimes, when they apply the gold gilting, the maker may apply it too heavy which will obscure some of the medals detailing.

It was mentioned on another thread that there are fakes/copies bearing the Resch hallmark, so the presence of such a mark does not bring the definitive proof of authenticity.
