    Yes they both look you.
    This was my first medal I got when I was a kid.

    Both are fine and are original examples.
    The difference in colour is found on many medals from this era. The second medal you post is in better condition than the first with the silver wash remaining on the edge and on the helmet. The first has this colour missing. Wear, materials, storage conditions, differences in makers methods all play a part in whether or not certain medals or awards retain their finish.
