    I've never heard of the these being faked but having said that,
    I don't like the ribbon. It's hard for me to tell from the photo but
    it almost looks like the ribbon is looped on one edge and knotted
    on the other. An original ribbon would be looped on both edges.

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.

    I agree with Greg,
    Likely an original award with a replacement ribbon.

    Thanks guys. I forgot to mention that I never for one moment believed that the ribbon was period; It's clearly synthetic, but that's OK so long as the medal is real
