ok, I understand we do not know eachother and that I had some glasses of chianti while learning how to upload pictures but it is gold, no nicotine no coffe or tea... the ring compared to the others I have is as big as the others.
the medal appear to be in zink, no marking no silver traces.
Thanks for ur help
Tampered with, to make it more valuable? Even though it doesn't exist.
Probably Ingrid, it does look as though someone has painted it !!

Nick,do the feathers on the eagles wings look ok to you? It may be just me. Stewy
Just tried to clean it with some nitro solvent, no results, it is plated.
Still it is only 45 euros so no big deal if exist or not, I was told it was the spanish version and I took my chance!
It looks like a paint job to me to.
Now there,s a new one "the Osten Medal in gold"
The sword on the reverse seems a little 'fat" towards the tip or is that just me.
