    Thank you, Ingrid.
    You are absolutely right, Nick.
    Don - no sign of repair, there is silver frosting over the solder where the ring is attached. Unfortunately, my cheap Nikon isn't the best for taking pictures.

The area you highlight is the remnants of the frosting where the polisher couldn't get into between the beading and suspension ring.

    I believe it, Roger, it looks perfect. And pictures don't do it justice, I'm sure. These medals look so much better in person than in pictures, especially minty ones.
