    Hi Adam, would you be able to most more discrete pics of the medal; preferably any numbers on the ring and other side. Also does it rattle when shook? Does any black appear to be on the outer layer? Does it have a magnetic core?

    One picture cannot judge the whole thing, but from what you have told me it seems ok (appart from the stamp on the ring, I have no clue of fd or fe), If i was you just hold back on it and let other have a say; we are all here to help
