By the form of the suspension, style of the kanji on reverse, surface, paint colour, little tiny details here and there, etc ...

I thought it`s obvious :whistle: especially after these two threads (one devoted to the replicas and another to the original medal) ;)

Honestly, gents!

I heard by rumor about one origin medal with an AUTHENTIC ribbon! Never saw it, but the source is absolute reliable!

Nick, you know, who I'm taking about, right?

I'm just curious, if there are any further authentic ribbons? I guess, these ribbons looks the same, but have a different "haptic" feeling?

Blame Chris!

I've always been known as quite serious chap 1432f9fc207489270d5da4d78818ebff.gif

P.S. Please note that toward the end Chris even stoped typing anything ...

He simply quoted my post and that was it!

Fit of sunday laziness? :whistle:

No! That's not true!

Check the symbol below your post "American Numismatic Society ..." and you'll see "something different" ;)

I wasn't able to use "MultiQuote" correct - I'm here at a different place and my PC is too old and have some problems here...

Sorry for that!

PS: Sundays are always my lazy day! :jumping:

    • 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.
