    It's an original medal and ribbon. The silver finish to the edge has gone to time unfortunately but it's all original. There are better examples out there if you look.......

    All of these medals had a silver finish to the helmet and around the edge, this one has been lost over time from wear and because the base metal is zinc. Zinc has the tendancy to absorb finish over time.

    Not quite sure what you mean regarding the makers mark or characteristics? Do you want a specific maker? These are hard to nail to a maker unless they do have a makers mark.

    ah ok just thought there were some differences with different makers.

    There may well be some very minor variations but not to the extent that individual medals can be identified to specific makers such as in the case of EKs.

    If anyone knows differently please share it here.
