OTTER76   

Hi fellows. Napoleonic Wars is not really my field, but I liked this medal when I saw it and grab it altogether with a Hesse-Cassel one.

Do you like it? Is it silver or other metal? what about the ribbon? I presumed they were broader, and this one is thin.

Any thoughs are most appreciated. Thanks,

Regards,Alex

This medals were allways made of silver except the gold version.

The ribbon bar is not from the period.

Kind regards Alex

Thanks Alex for your reply. I knew when I got this one from Emedals some years ago, the ribbon was not period. But somewhere in time I got second thoughts on the originality of the medal itself looking at other reference pictures, and since then could not get a straight forward opinion about it. To me it is maybe too shiny and perhaps light for a napoleonic piece of this type. I realized it was an impulsive buy and knew little about it. Got to regret it.
