Have our medal specialists seen one of these before?

It must be an impression from the medal - see it is reversed. But what's it for - is it a brooch?

I don't think it is a die. How did they get the naming around the perimeter to curve?

Are you saying the medal was destroyed to do it? And why is the image of the medal itself reversed?

Littlehand

Do we know where the image came from?

The medal has not been tampered with and is perfectly alright.

The "ring of naming" around the medal is a series of photographs or one "panoramic" photograph taken in order to show the naming as it appears on the medal and then placed around a picture of the disc in order to show the obverse or reverse of the medal along with the naming all in one picture.

I believe you can do something like this with a device called an i phone.

I'm still not sure that is right.

Look at the words "South Africa" on the reverse of the medal - they are back to front - as is the lion engraving. Like in a mirror. They would be that way if someone had taken a soft metal pressing of the real medal.

Shame we do not know the source.

The picture of the disc has been reversed prior to the circular picture of the naming being added.

Here is an example of the use of this type of image/ picture to show naming types. Whilst they are not of a South Africa General Service Medal they are a good example of how it is used by auction houses to show the naming of medals.
