War Merit Medal

Post by FreemanOrrin1942 » 07 Jan 2020 02:13

I recently picked up this War Merit Medal at the local Antique Center and got it for 20 U.S. dollars. I am wondering what the value of this one would be and if it is authentic. Being a novice in this field, I am not sure if it is real or not. Thanks so much in advance guys.

Original medal, not so sure about the ribbon (correct colors but the black edge isn't typical). Value is about what you paid....
