    Looks legit but it looks like the dreaded zinc pest has got to it, clean it with vaseline!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    This medal looks nice, and the ring seems marked.

    Hi,

    I agree, it's a good one but a fast cleaning is required!

    regards,

    I have to ask what's the Zinc Pest? And how come some of these Medals look like this while others seem to retain the black color with the silver around the edge & on the Helmet? I just bought one that still has the black color paint on it, and still has the silver to. But there's a couple of bubbles in the black paint, and it seems that's common on the ones with the black paint still on them..

    I just looked up Zinc Pest, so now I know what it is. And there seems to be a debate on what or if anything can be done to stop or delay it..
