Any idea on the manufacturing date/year of the medal?

To my very untrained eye the medal seems to be in pristine condition for a medal that's, for argument's sake, 20-30 years old.

But it's better if the more knowledgeable members voice their opinion...I might be completely wrong and in that case will gladly accept being corrected.

Hi there,

It looks fine to me.... on my phone.1945 type.

Definitely  an unawarded bank escapee from back in the day.  I think 400 produced and highest known is 398 so this one is about as high as you can get..

Take a look at this long thread for more info.

Price? Who knows these days. Haven’t seen one for sale in years other than on collectrussia which has #60 for sale for a little under 2k.

If I were in the market for one and had to have one. Maybe $1200-1350 for this serial number. Honestly, I don’t think it’s worth more than $800-900.

I am speculating and basing this on what I’d be willing to part with if I had to have it.

 

Hope this helps

jan

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
