1815 Order of William
(1815 Militaire Willemsorde)

(Left and Right) An easy replica/forgery to reckognize is a Polish-made one. The most distinguished feature is the text in the arms. Unlike the orginal the text is irregular: The "R" in the text VOOR is too long on the bottom, both on the oberverse as on the reverse. The "I" in BELEID is placed too close to the "E" and is too long.

Furthermore, the medal bears a silvermark, but is only silverplated. The original medals are thick in the center and are slim on the outer arms. The forgery has the same thickness all the way
