Not sure if AHM gives out ELM medals every year. The ones before 2010 don't have the ELM stamp but they seem to be of ELM quality. The 2011 medal was lighter and was of a poorer quality in comparison. Also no ELM stamp on it. Is it only me or does anyone else find last year's SCMS medal rather poor quality? I received mine with a chipped corner and rust under the ribbon. Also find the finishing on the medal is different compared to the previous years. ELM medals usually have a brushed metal look but not last year's.
