    It is perfectly normal...the medal is an early made example made of copper-clad aluminum (cupal). It looks good to me...it should weigh between 9-10 grams.

    Hi Chrys, that's good to know, thanks! I half thought it was plastic at first by the weight/feel, but it is actually more solid than that when you tap it and put some light pressure on it.

    9 grams on the scales (with the ribbon)...
