    The medal itself is original, but the ribbon may be a replacement. It is quite common to find these medals with the original ribbons swapped for new ones. I think I can just make out scalloped edges, which would make the ribbon a genuine one, but with the quality of these photographs it's simply too hard to tell for sure.

    i believe Brodie is correct about the ribbon being a replacement ( quite a good repro imo ) the scalloped edges are normally an off white colour on originals as far as i know, See my example below, Regards Paul
