Treue Dienst Ehrenzeichen, 25 Jahre. Opinions?
I bought this medal a while back and it looks good and original to me though the red rust in the reverse concerns me since I've never seen other examples of such rusting on treue dienst medals. Looking forward to your opinions, thank you and have a nice day!

I'm not really au fait with these but it looks O.K. to me after having a quick look at others. The thing that I notice that interests me most is a possible maker mark on the ring. Is this the case?

It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

Really rough shape, but looks ok.........
That would be a first for me! Hope it is the case!

Thank you everyone for your responses, I'm glad that there are no red flags.
Unfortunately, there seems to be no maker mark on the ring.. just some some scratches I believe.
