    I agree with Nick. The tiny maker mark over the gator's left arm is always a good sign, too.

    Both of the fakes I have of this medal have the MM above the arm, though one of them has it above the other arm, so maybe not a good sign on its own IMO.

    I always like to see the edge on these, as all the fakes I have seen have a casting seam around them.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
