Hi Dave.
The campaign medals are made out of silver and they are quite weighty for their size.

Well that's good to know. We all know Silver is more expensive than Bronze which is what the VC is made of.. So the value comes in what the medal represents.

Hi Gary. I have read this article before. And I think is quite feasible what the man is saying. The interesting thing is, no one has contradicted his claim.
