    Default ss 4 & 8 year long service medals

    Hi I've just got hold of these 2 medals and wondered what you think? Should both ribbons be identical? As the 8 year's one is narrower than the 4 years one. Thanks!!

    in acutal practice the ribbons should be the same width,however variations in manufacture could account for this,,nice medals

    I think I would like to see good clear close up's of both medals taken in daylight. I must say I have real concerns about both of them.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: Welcome to the forum!

    Thanks for the welcome! Both medals measure 38mm across and weigh 25 grams each if thats a help? I've tried uploading more pics but it says a security token is missing whatever that means??

    It means the pics are too big. Load them one at a time, until the maximum of 10 in one post are uploaded.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nice 1 that worked that time thanks! The ring on top of the 4 year medal is slightly off centre and its alot blacker than the pics.

    Sorry, but both of these are bad in my opinion.

    The detail to the background on both these medals is poor. The basic metal used is also bad. Note the finish and underlying metal to the 4 year servic medal in particular.

    We have several good examples shown on the forum. Do a search and compare.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for your input. I've seen many fakes and thought that these were original. Everything from the size and weight of them to the measurements of the tear drop suspension ring is correct i'll try and get clearer pics because the background seems ok. I'm sure you've seen more of these than me tho mate so know alot more. Thanks again
