Default Kriegsmarine Award Plaque, fake or not?

Not sure which sub forum this falls under, if this is the wrong sub forum, please direct me to the appropriate one, anyways I would wish to know your guys’ opinions on whether this Kriegsmarine Award Plaque I found for sale is fake or not. Also, if ever it is real, how much would it be worth? Thanks and have a nice day everyone!

Cast looks right, backboard appears to have been black at one time. Construction and hanger are proper. Cant really make the engraving out but would not be the highest quality on a piece like this. I think you can risk 200.00 and pull the plaque with a proper nut driver and it might be bronze which would jive with the dates. No one can call it bad off the photos here.

I just checked this ebay seller from Poland: he also sells a 1932 Eva Braun Kettle, I think now you know the answer to your question fake or real ...

Like JMCM I've suddenly seen these popping up around the place - and never noticed one before. A bit like the U-boat plaques that are suddenly everywhere. Always a danger sign. I think Glaser's note about the seller also having the fake coffee pot conclusively puts the final nail in that coffin.

Wasn't Eva Adolph's main squeeze in '32??

I checked and they were already 'Friends' on Facebook in 1932.
Love and cohabitation would have been the next logical step, right??!
