Nick,

What do you think about the medal, which you posted in #46/#47?

Any repaired medal? Have a look at the suspension. Looks like some (old?) tin-"marks"...

BR, Chris

You don`t trust nobody :lol:

By this photo it is impossible to say anything with confidence ...

Cheers,

Nick

P.S. Allow me to remind you that you are "looking for Japanese (cased!) War- and Commemorative Medals and award documents" :lol:

Well, it's not a question of (mis-)trusting. But talking about a repaired one could have a big effect on any price negotiation.

That's not to be sneezed at, isn't it? ;)

PS: Thanks for your reminder. In your case, I would maken an exeception with my principle and would start step by step: 1. the medal, 2. the case, 3. the award documen t :cheers:

Then simply ask the seller :whistle:

That's what our usual trusting collectors do :lol:
