Civil Defence Long Service medal (British) marked “CWM Specimen”


Civil Defence Long Service medal (British) marked “CWM Specimen”.  This is an original medal.  The Canadian War Museum released some of their overstock of medals in the 1980’s and to prevent unnamed medals from being fraudulently named, they engraved them with “CWM Specimen.”  Many examples of the Canada General Service Fenian Raid medals can be found this way.  It is unusual to find another medal example.   Awarded for 15 years long service in the Civil Defence organizations including Gibralter, Hong Kong and Malta in 1965.  Extremely fine.
