    Hi everyone!

    I recently got this medal and would like your opinions on the medal's ribbon (it is 25 mm wide) and the ribbon bar.
    The medal itself is original in my opinion.

    Thank you!

    I know about the burn and black light test...but how do you tell if it's original before buying?

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the medal is a reproduction. Original medals have the designers name (P. Grant) on the bottom of the liberty head.
