Where to begin, fake incorrect markings, bad beading on frame, slanted uneven numbers on date, poor detail overall, atifical aging.... Post-war ribbon..... Nothing like the quality of an original. Remember these are very rare awards and heavily faked, some are extremely well done. This one isn't that good.

Usually the RK copies have poorly made corners
