    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Hi markma,neither "800" (unless it's a 800 silver private purchase) or "000" are recognised makers marks. As far as i'm aware,but i've been wrong before. Stewy S

    The EKII looks a little suspect as a whole, but having said that, it can be hard to determine these days.

    The one thing that does interest me is the eagle stamp to the rear of the medal packet. There is no continuing line across the flap, pre allocation. A best guess would offer a later stamp added by someone else, if original packet at all.

    Any chance of a closeup of the maker name on the envelope.
