To test the authencity of you medal:

1) Burn a peace of thread;
If the thread balls up (with no ash) then it's a syntetic material, which in most instances indicates a post war made item.

If the thread burns clean (just turns to ash) it is a non-syntetic material & then has a greater chance of being period.

2) The UV light, this one is not very good

3) Get a white piece of paper. 'Drag' your medal around the white paper. If the paper is getting a little bit black its fake!
