Nice Wayne!!!
the Customs medal was made by S&L, but I haven't seen any that looked like they were from another maker...though Deumer could have made them too!
Not many variants, some have a darker finish than others, but it seems to me, that they were made early on, by S&L, and then a much later production run for the collectors period, they are much less appealing in terms of quality and finish!

Thanks Nigel.

Could the difference between early and late be the weight?

There could be a weight difference Wayne, but I haven't handled a later one, and don't know the weight of them, only the earlier version!!
