:jumping: Wow, excellent information Gunner!

I have always wanted to know more details on distingushing between the Type 1 & 2 medals and this really explains it! Thank you! :cheers:

I understood, at one point in the past, these Type-1's were not desired and could be had for less than or the same price as the Type-2's. Try to find one today and I bet you can't say that anymore, if you can even find them.

Tim: That is a good question. I have not seen Type I VMs except to officers and I have seen very few other than RA officers, but that may be due to my interest in RA officers. Gunner 1

Some really sweet examples shown. I do see a common factor here, all of these are to officers. I wonder if any enlisted men received the Type-1 VM?

Hello Tim,

My two Type 1 vics are to a LT in RFA and a MAJ in the RAMC (Medical Corps).

Hi Rob,

I tried to find the excellent comparisons you did on the old thread but couldn't find those pages, maybe I missed them? Anyway, I remember you showed some die comparisons of the medal planchets that might be of interest here.

With the information Gunner just added, do you still consider your medal bar example (with MID) as a Type-1 or is it one of these refurbished examples?

Hey Tim,

The pic & info of the type 1 trio with MID is at post # 158 on 10 October 2009 for comparison. Both of my examples have not been refurbished and are the type 1.

Here are a couple I have with different style naming although I don't know which type.

One has round stops, the other has square stops.

These are things I never really noticed before.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
