    This example arrived today and I have to say i'm quite pleased with it. The patina is minimal but attractive and the ribbon smells of 'old', just the way I like them. No maker mark unfortunately.

    I seem to recall about 50,000 of these were ever awarded?

    hi glenn,
    54,900 people got this medal in july 1936.
    I like your clean example and the faded colour of the ribbon, something that is less common to find as most stay the more dark shade of red.
    If i remember correct the ways to tell the fakes are the 'pidgeon head',
    also the letters being in neat rows.
    This was because it was not machine engraved.
    Here is my unmarked example,

    I don't know if the ribbon is actually faded, i've read that there were red, yellow and orange ribbons?
