I've seen so many fakes and repros over the years, it's made me a bit gun shy at times...

I recently purchased the medal below, you can see from the scan, it almost looks painted... Is this normal for this particular medal?

It looks fine to me. I have several in my collection and a couple look "chalky" to me. Not much value in copying this medal for the market.
