My one is exactly the same except it hasn’t been polished and has no 50 thing , even has the correct marking on it, what do you mean “ at best a medal Bar Piece” you lot here are a tough crowd . Why can’t you say “ wow Rob that’s really cool great pick up “ I was looking for a bit of assistance not a beat down . Rob

I am giving you assistance, not a beatdown. Your piece is not exactly the same. The linked piece (below) is a very nice original award piece. The one on your bar is an inexpensive copy. Maybe even a period copy, I don't know.

You can't compare the value of the two pieces because the only things that make the auctioned piece valuable are the original crown and the 50 button, neither of which yours has.

The Verdiesntkreuz in Gold mit Krone is also an extremely rare piece and if it's an authentic period award type is the most valuable piece on the bar.

But it does have the original crown the same as the one you posted and the W stamped into the bottom . If we gave it a good polish it would look exactly the same minus the 50 thingy . In fact mine should be more valuable as it has a nice patina and the crown is nice and tight not all wibbly wobbly.Like with british Victorian and gallantry medals of which I have a lot, the original patina is quite sought after.However I appreciate your reply’s .
