War Memel database of originals

Hi guys, until now there was a lot of confusion about this beautiful and rare medal. So, before my book will be ready for publication, I post here a little database of originals Memel for reference.
The medals are divided in "Tilted G" (4 different makers) and "Slanted G" (7 different makers).

Hope this can be of help for the collector community.


FIRST PART:
TILTED G

Thanks guys, I go on with the second part.
Today too I've seen on web some identifications of the Memel makers that are completely wrong, to avoid it happens again in two days I'll post all the pictures.

SECOND PART

Hamdy I understand your request, and I'll do my best for improve this thread with the fakes too when my time permits.
However if someone need help he can post some pictures in the "General Wehrmacht Awards" room and we will be happy to give our opinion about.

This seems contradictory to me - at the top picture it says Tilted G Type 1 29 original, and further down Slanted G 29 Fake - can you not post a pic of each medal with a 'fake' or 'original' next to it? Are we calling them tilted or slanted?

It is not contraddictory, it is easy:
if "X" is an original medal and exist a medal copied from that "X", I call it simply "X fake".
This happens in all others fields: for example a DKiG original marked "20" is an "original 20", a fake is a "Fake 20".

Hope now is all clear.

I post a straight G 7 original and a Straight G 7 fake. Same name, but one is only "Straight G 7" and the other is "Fake Straight G 7".
