    I wonder if the owner was with his medal when that damage occured... Nice one nevertheless!!!

    Unlikely as the medals were never worn except on the day of awarding. I think this one simply rusted away naturally and was somehow crushed over time. The frames are totally separated and very flimsy, here they are held together with some judicious spots of 5 minute epoxy.
