I read it that he's saying fakes exist (you don't need to be a brain surgeon to know that) and that as Jo Rivett says on his video they are covered in casting pits, visible under magnification.

I do like the look of this cross, but Iím interested that the cross looks worn/ tarnished as expected, but the wreath is nice and bright gold. Is that typical? I ask not as a criticism, but out of interest.

Totally normal Tony, the silver oxidises but the gold always remains bright. The dull gold ones are the ones that worry me personally. I've never had a microscope on one though.

Actually it sold before I had a chance to put it on estand. I do have some other interesting medals/badges listed (Long service, RAD, Customs,NSKOV). Thanks everyone who commented.

No im not saying anything about it.
I just can not understand how you can authenticate medals with pictures like that.
You need a microscope as fakes are getting better.

I agree,
Especially after these have been exposed as at risk.
Iím sure the fakes can be identified with a good quality photo

Kind regards Chay

In my case I authenticated the medal,by looking at the box and ribbon. It's possible for a fake medal to be in a real box,but not that common.

The medals themselves are not 'rare', the boxes on the other hand …

I've now examined the medal with a 30x magnifying glass, and compared it to my other service medals. And it's perfectly real.

I'm very happy with it,and I want to say that Rob is a very stand up seller,he read the previous replys and offered to refund my money if I didn't like it.

It is not about that it is about putting what you already have under the microscope.
