    I think it stands a good chance of being an original silver grade with the only finish remaining on the hardware Gary.
    There are some very good fakes of this one so, maybe the reason for no replies yet.
    Here is a good thread on the makers of this award.

    I agree that it has a chance of being an original Linden soldered hinge type but I couldn't be certain from these rather poor (by current standards) pictures.

    If it is genuine it looks to be in pretty rough condition and you should consider that FLL pieces are one of the more common examples of an award that is not the most rare (relatively speaking) yet one of the more expensive. So, Balance this against the price and how much you want this particular piece.

    If you are interested in acquiring it ask for better pics and if the seller won't / can't provided them then I suggest you write it off on that basis.

    As I say, I wouldn't be happy to authenticate it on these pictures.

    Regards

    Mark

    Well, those additional pictures make all the difference and for that money I think it is a bargain. Don't forget to add your pictures for reference when you get it.
    Well done for persisting!
