Soldier’s Medal real or memorex?


Recommended Posts

I’m far from an expert on engraving so my $.02 is I don’t like it; it reminds me of a style I’ve seen before that is known fake on other medals. If this is a 60s-70s strike I’d expect to see machine vice what looks like hand engraving. Again not my AOE so...

T-4 Arthur Bernath of the 531st Ordnance Heavy Maintenance Company (Tank) was awarded to Soldiers Medal under 3rd Army General Orders No. 8 (9 January 1945) for heroism on 14 October 1944 in France when he attempted to rescue an English officer whose car crashed through a railing and went into a river. This looks like hand engraving on the medal, so I suspect it is a good piece. If so, you have a very nice find!

Looks like 1980s engraving to me. Probably a replacement medal, IMHO.
