    Sorry it's a fake IMO. The hardware & reverse is wrong. The obverse details are soft too. Stewy

    The first example has a "shadowing" on the oak leaves. A dead giveaway for me. Stewy

    The hinge baseplate overlaps the badge. Which i'm not comfortable with & as Tom says "cast" or "spun cast" awards are known to be smaller. I may be totally wrong but it's not one i'd want in my collection. Sorry. Stewy

    talltom, the pic u added has the same "dents" on the back where the boat is, and if you look closely the hinge base plate also overlaps the frame.

    I really need more opinions please, thanks you to everyone that has replied, appriciate it alot
