    Did the price reflect the condition? I guess 15 years ago was at the start of the internet era for these pieces and militaria forums, online sales sites and the price increases we are familiar with.

    The missing insert that Ned points out wouldn't bother me is the price was right because I would display it with the SS runes showing, not the inside of the case.

    Hi Adrian, thank you for the reply. I paid 400 for it and I would have either purchased it from the Old Brigade or Regimentals. Thank you, nic.

    Thanks for the extra pics, I say good P&L, the suspension loop and jump ring look typical for this maker in shape and the soldering points to me. All the fakes i've seen have the jump ring cast in, not soldered on as per originals. The case is neither here or there as you already own it and have more than doubled your investment on the medal disregarding the case.

    Regards, Ned.

    Their is an 8 year cased SS medal from a 2009 post listed below.Check that case against yours.These 4,and 8 year are always (and should be) scrutinized very closely so anyone posting one should always move the ribbon to show the suspension and jump ring.Saves time from the others who will ask about photos of above.

    Thank you Ned and Goodbuys for your feedback. It is much appreciated. I will also endeavour in future to provide fuller/clearer photos. Thanks, nic.
