This is actually a 40 Year badge. They added the gold oakleaves to the 25's to make them into 40's. I'm not impressed with the detailing of the ribbon eagle and the rims on the medal itself look suspicious-especially so on the top of the obverse side. It Could possibly be a late war production piece, but it would not be for me.

a sideways view would help.
That ribbon-eagle looks bad to me...
Thanks guys , more reviews welcome
Thats an odd looking 4 year medal, it has no rim
