Studley did "go off track" as time went on. In 1965 he sold the spuriously engraved Cavanaugh named Specially Meritorious Medal to a collector I know and although he made no claim of its originality, I still find that wrong. Since then at least six of these fakes have been seen. All are J.K. Davidson dies and all appear to be engraved by the same person. Fortunately the engraving is not that good and at least the two shown below do not check out on the Specially Meritorious lists or on the Sampson Medal rolls.
