    Default Prussian Medal for 15yr service

    I am looking at this medal and it is actually silver in colour when it should be a gold. Photos are unfortunately not the best, but on the obverse can be seen small sections of gold colour remaining. Question being, is it genuine and were these prone to losing their colour? Please have a look and tell me your thoughts. Thank you

    Both medal and ribbon is good. These medals get lighter in some areas, I have one that is really light on some spots, so light it is acually shining. its probably that you call silver.

    If yours is really silver, I would like to see a better pic.

    Should be bronze base metal. They are often found
    without much or any finish left.........
