    Hi Dan,

    It appears to be a 'Type 1' 4 year medal, often attributed to Deschler. Whether or not it's a good one I wouldn't like to say for sure on the evidence of these photo's, they're not good enough. The background 'stippling' is not apparent in these unfocussed and slightly distorted shots, and better close ups of that and the suspension ring from various angles would help to clarify matters. Although it stands a fair chance, I would not buy it on the strength of the photo's here.

    Regards, Ned.

    That is the crux of the matter, these aren't a cheap medal and much clearer photos are needed to be able give any informed opinion.
