    Default 3rd of May Medal

    Hello All,

    I have the opportunity to purchase a 3rd of May Medal in a private deal, but to be honest I've never seen a real one in person. A lot of fakes have come along that are easy to spot, though I'm sure there are some good ones floating around given there were less than 5,000 of these awarded.

    Can anyone provide photos of an original and any identifying information? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Cheers,

    Brandon
