Default Weird EK1 edge

Technically, this is not an Imperial medal but a 1939 piece. I put it here because it's an early schinkel piece, and share some similarities with 1914EKs. My question is - is it normal to see this kind of non-smooth edges with small dots(you can see clearly on its leaft arm in the picture) on original 1914 EK1(especially on pieces from Deumer)? What caused this weird looking.

Those are shear marks from the tool used to cut out the frame and back plate. I am assuming the piece is not silver but a harder metal like nickle silver.

Many thanks Don D. I used to think its made by a modern machine and doubt the authenticity of this piece.
Best regards

Aren't these simply the marks left by the teeth of a file?
