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

    • 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.
    • "(...) 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 .
