Help please with 1874 war medal

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I’m looking for help with this medal. It’s moderately tarnished (no pitting) and I was wondering if I should lightly clean it. Also what would be a fair current value.

Thank you all for any advice and information.

Tom

The medal looks original.

The ribbon is a later replacement.

DBR1643,

I wouldn't clean this medal.  Particularly with this value.  Some medals I clean with soap and water but primarily these are medals of relatively low value.

Regards,

Gordon
