These medals are made of .925 Sterling Silver, that weigh .6 ounces each - without the ribbon. I am pricing them just above the Silver Market. WHEN Silver goes up, so will these medals! They are very interesting medals, it is a shame to melt them. I have 5 of them. The yellow arrow points at the word "STERLING". I am not selling these all 5 with ribbons. For melting purposes you don't need them anyway. CLICK THE IMAGES TO SEE THEM BETTER.
