Nope. I bought in 1990 from dealer in NZ.
He said both the groups were on bars, and removed cos of moth.
But who knows.

A moth, how strange, I would have left them alone.

I think my own favourite has always been the 1935 Jubilee medal, beautifully designed and finished.

I would not expect to see an "engraved" BWM, perhaps they mean impressed, either way, it is a shame, but, if the particular BWM was actually owned by the recipient I suppose it does not matter really.
