Ebay Dewey Medal Opinions Please

Recommended Posts

What do you members think about the Dewey medal listed on Ebay? The medal engraving looks very rough. The person named is on the ship roster. The medal is supposed to be a Tiffany made piece.

Other than the engraving, what are other features that would indicate a fake?

I always like screenshots of the auctions because these pieces often come back up for sale, again and again...when they are supposedly "sold".

Originals have two major tell tell features- thick planchet rings and even, rim impressed lettering on the rim.  No example of the Dewey was ever engraved, and later examples have much larger and thinner suspension rings. 


Looking for vintage Pre-WWII campaign miniature medals, shoot me a message if you've got any to spare!!

 

Also looking for these vintage miniatures:

 

Presidential Medal for Merit

Silver Lifesaving Medal

Gold Lifesaving Medal

NC-4 Medal (mini) And miniature version- FOUND!!

Byrd Antarctic Expedition Medal

Purple Heart- FOUND!!
