I did not pickup on the selling part. Have you tried your hand at pewter casting and mold carving then?

There seems to be a LOT of people selling SP medals but I do not see any/many on full ribbons like an event award might be presented on.
Heh- I intend to market these- which is why I am coming up with designs. I desire to keep them eminently affordable.
What about buying real medals then swapping parts and/or replacing ribbon colors? https://www.armysurplusworld.com/military-rank-patches/medals ;
You might even replace the medal with a 2nd hand brooch or foreign coins. https://www.etsy.com/listing/569649172/lot-of-1lb-2lbs-4-pounds-mix...
It could be a wallet saver to make and wear a medal or watch fob made from one of these little German coins. A Pfennig was worth maybe 6/10th of a US penny but the German bar game was to set one down in front of you and if you could not produce one you had to buy a round. I have worked these coins in to fobs and chari-varis for myself and friends.
Sine so many people are riled by "stolen valor" these days you might want to consider wearing even fake medals on the wrong side of your chest just in case. I know a few SP folks who do this.
I keep forgetting to take pictures of the SP medals that we have collected on the SP Cruise over the years such as the "dessert challenge" medal for finishing ALL of the dessert on the menu at one sitting including the cheese plate.
