If it’s good I think it’s cheap but it’s not my area so someone else buy it!

I would like to make a comment about this medal, I have had a look at the pictues supplied especially the naming and I dont like the look of it. I have recently bought a QSA to the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons which is correctly engraved and there is no comparison-

Georgegt351,

The pictures on eBay are not very clear which is not helping.

In the picture below, Sefton's medal is at the top and below is another engraved medal to a fellow 18th Hussar.

There appears to be a diagonal line after Sefton's surname and then something else but these are probably later damage.

There will be some variability with engraved medals and Sefton's warrants further inspection.
