    I not an expert but I don’t like the way the two pieces don’t have the same patina. And the wreath looks too close to the hanging bar.

    The Medal of Honor should always raise giant red flags because 1) not a common award 2) it is illegal to sell, buy, or reproduce the MOH in the USA and 3) this is not an award that just causally gets passed around.
    But they are reproduced overseas so most that are found are not authentic.

    I've only ever seen these in museums. The above are all very good points regarding its authenticity. I doubt very many collectors have had in-hand experience with these

    Thanks for your replies. I have a question, were all of them named on the backside?
