I am not an expert but it seems the 40 years is painted, so it is not a quality work!
That must be just the way the picture is taken. 100% sure there is no paint to them i suppose you talking about the mini.
It's just lost finish on some spots but in hand it looks not like paint
Looks like another super set Wim!!
Please can you post a close up shot of the main medal?

Yes, it is my problem...
Another superb set Wim, nice pieces!
As you say, the finish has worn off in a couple of places on the mini but it's not painted.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
