I knew that "crossed-sword" logo seemed familiar.......
It is a Meissen porcelain logo.
It is correct for post 1934.
I have a Wehrwolf medallion with the same logo from 1925, and mine has the "dot" at the top, which is correct for the Post 1924 era.
But MY medallion is not porcelain - it looks like red clay......it's called "Bottger Steinzug" (Stonewear)
IMO, there's a good chance it's authentic.

Interesting, short facts about Johann Bottger, the originator of Meissen porcelain.
What does it say under Hitler's neck? I can't make it out.........

I find that hard to believe based off the nose alone but that is just me.

Meissen would not make such a low quality item...they are renowned for their white finish znd accuracy....you can ignore the x swords....they are put on almost everything to enhance prices

Of course the medal is 100% original as manufactured by the firm of Meissen regardless of the opinions of the rhinoplasty experts. Photos are too small though and distort it slighly and it appears to be bisque or unglazed and I believe I am looking at raised swords.

Looks OK to me. Not everything the TR produced was of Tiffany quality.

Never claimed to be an expert. I just found it unlikely that a piece would see production with the nose features as I stated. Im glad it is original for the OP!

Don't be surpirsed, its quite likely. The bigger question to me is why that would be a deciding factor when authenticating a piece of Meissen porcelain. In the mean time you not only give the guy the wrong information, you fuel this Facebook type of criteria that means absolutely nothing and people read it and repeat it like it does.

Well now I know. I gave him MY belief. Never said it was concrete. Hop off your high horse.
