an acquaintance of mine showed me the other days a British Military Medal that was given to a Romanian NCO during WW1. For almost two years he asked a lot of people why is the medal so peculiar. It is not made of silver (and he doesn't know the alloy) and it is not marked with the bearer's name.
Could you please provide me some info about these types of medals? What metal are they made of? How much they worth? Why are not marked?
Thank you very much
