I think that the first one, knight with swords, is made by the national mint, typical ww2 construction.
Both are originals in my opinion.


Thanks for your feedback, Boonicutza!
I didn't have any doubts about their being original - they were awarded to family members (unfortunately, all dead by now) and have been in the family ever since.
However, I didn't know one of them was ww2 construction, and I didn't know who the manufacturer was.

About the one with swords - any idea if it was early ww2 or late ww2 construction?
About the other one - what do you think: pre-ww1, ww1, or pre-ww2?
One more thing: any particularities or unusual design that you can spot?

Something to note: the one with swords clearly looks like it has had the swords tips and handles added to a medal which was originally minted or manufactured without swords.
I remember earlier in this thread, someone showed a similar example (with "added" swords) and thought that this meant that the order was fake. Since the one I posted is not a fake - guaranteed - I guess this proves that the other example shown earlier was also original.

Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

Who made this order of the crown?? It's quite strange, the big crown in the center.
It's from Okazii
