Default WWI Turkish Star

Hi: Years ago I bought this "chipped enamel and over-painted Turkish award...and I'd like to know if it's original. I can live with the chipped enamel and paint. Thank you,

I’m just saying that this variant is heavily reproduced, yours is good original.

And the Godet looks very bad - but it is an original.
