Post Gallipoli star - JH Werner Berlin 935

Hello everyone! For discussion is this Gallipoli Star I have just obtained. At the price I paid it was more than reasonable as a display piece. As my research has concluded, there are many styles of J.H. Werner made pieces for this award and with all the known variants and styles with makers marks concerning this maker, I thought I'd share this. All comments welcome!

Notice the small metal piece clamped to the top right swivels.

The maker's stamp is very similar to the one depicted below in the link. I do find it odd that my example has a double stamp.

Personally for me to much cracks on it - but imo a good piece.

not one of the 1000s fakes out there.

Even with the damage, still a rare and original Werner. One of the every few out there among a sea of fakes.

I could live with the damage. When will you ever see another for sale?
