Default Customs long service cross

I picked this medal up today in a deal, i had to take it as it was a all or nothing and i had to feed my obsession with cloth eagles and if ok its off to estand
So i think the LDO box is fake but what do you think of the medal it seems to be bronze not zink and is in mint condition

The ribbon looks like a fake as it lacks edge loops as for the medal I'm a bit unsure.

The ribbon is 100% fake, the cross itself a nice original.

I agree with Ian. The ribbon is fake, but the cross is a nice original. The LdO box looks good, but probably used for a Faithful Civil Service Decoration rather than a Customs Decoration.

Best regards,
Tom
