    I think it's a fake.

    The metal is too brass-like with no 'stippling' in the background,
    the small ring on the medal should have a bevel, the runes
    on the ribbon are too large and poorly done.

    A search of the Forum will show you what a genuine one
    looks like........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I have to agree with Steve. It doesn't look like an original example from the pics and again, try a search because several original medals have been posted here.

    I think it's a fake too. The suspension ring should be tear drop shaped also from these photo's the colouration of the medal is all wrong with lack of detail and I have never come across a 8 year medal with SS runes on the ribbon.

    Also the suspension ring doesnt look bevelled
