    As far as I know, any medal marked with SS and RZM are fakes made from lead out of Poland.
    Photos would help.

    I may be wrong, but from that photo it doesn't look like a 3 piece construction. The paint from the core overlaps all the beading, looks just like a cast piece?

    Yeah, but you have to admit that the markings on the screw back plate are neat!
