Have a look at this:

1. The leaf which decorates the suspension socket is very thick.

The marked position (1) shows a corner of the leaf which exists on the right (original) but not on the left. And it looks like there was never something on the left. Because if there was something but was completely erased the whole surface must be flat. The relief should the be completely gone.

2. This line is definitely not on the right piece. One and the same die could not produce such a raised line if it wasn't altered. What would be the reason for that?

Oops.

Indeed this medal doesn't have this "raised line"

I've posted wrong medal for comparison :whistle:

Sorry man, I can't right now post the correct one (I am currently on mobile - that's why most of the time my posting activity looks like a series of outbursts :lol:) Until then please believe me that this "raised line" is "normal" feature of "normal" medals :)

Indeed, these medals looks like they were exposed to acid or something ...

That's why I thought it would be fun to discuss them :)

I think there were several dies (too many medals around ;))
