Hi Fred,

I really like what I see here. I can't recall ever seeing a box for the female RAD Medal, but this sure looks like the real deal to me. If I saw one like this at a show and the price was right I would grab it up. I would think this is a very rare item (the box) and I would not be concerned unless they started to pop up frequently.

Best regards,
Tom
