Is this a good St. George bravery medal?

Recommended Posts

The images below are all I have and it is said to be 27 mm in diameter.

It seems to compare well with items offered by emedals and Liverpool Medals and the finish does not look cast. The stamped suspension hole looks much the same as other items I have seen that seem to be considered original.

My questions are:

  • Is the medal good or a fake?
  • Is the issue number in a range for World War 1?
  • Is the issue number researchable?
  • Approximately what should I expect to pay for it?
  • Are five-sided period mounting plates available anywhere? (Liverpool Medals offer silk ribbon to restore it.)
Many thanks in advance for any help,

Hi David,

Nothing really stands out as incorrect.

I dont have any reference on the award #'s.

Looks OK to me..


Sorry about the delay..

I've been away from the forum for a while.

Hi George,

Thanks for the reply, which is not too late.

I might place a bid below what the online dealers seem to be asking and see what happens.
