    Hello again!

    I think this is a nicer one than the one I posted earlier.
    Odd looking ribbon, I don't know a fat lot about these medals, I just love the design.
    It's maker marked 19.
    Worth a punt at 40?

    Another good one imo. It looks like it has two ribbons in the loop.

    Thank you for the replies.
    Is it possible to tell if this one is zinc or not?
    From what I have learned zinc is not the way forward in terms of longevity
    with problems with bubbling and loss of finish.

    I believe that they are all zinc. as for the ribbon it appears to be the width used in the manufacture of ribbon bars.

    Some are tombak. Klein & Quenzer made them in tombak.

    At the risk of sounding like a buffoon, hey I do it well,
    What is tombak?

    In short Tombak, is a brass alloy with high copper content and 5-20% zinc content. Tin, lead or arsenic may be added for colouration. It is a cheap malleable alloy mainly used for medals, ornament, decoration and some munitions. In older use, the term may apply to brass alloy with a zinc content as high as 28%-35%
