Default Oakleaves for your opinion

Hello Collectors,

I have recently picked up some medals, and this was one of them. I have not yet have them in hand so these are the only pictures I have.

Completly unmarked and seems to made of silver,

I like to hear your opinions,

Thanks,

Chris

Hi!
I'm not too keen on them, looking at these photo's!
The details look quite soft, there appears to be some pitting, and also it looks like a line around the outside edge, all of which are signs of a cast piece.
I think they may be a casting made from an original S&L set??

As Nigel already said; the details are too soft and the outside edges give it away as a cast piece. Not a S&L made piece.

Regards,
Alex
