well, as one famous collector once said, these Waterloo Medals are a mine field of their own. There are many copies or faked one on the market. From the quality of your photos this is hard to tell. You should examine this one with a magnifying glass to see if this is a cast or a coined piece. Follow this link to medalnet, he explains the difference. If this one is a cast, then it is not a good one.

The Suspension loop is not an original one, even if the medal itself might be. But when this was exchanged no one could tell. 

Due to the amount of waterloo medals coined there a known variations on these medals. For example the amount of the tassels tied to the flags differs.
