Just from the photographs, I would say that decoration is completely spurious, if it was sold to you as original simply return it for a refund.

Someone has now questioned the authenticity of the medal, stating

"I'm not sure this item is authentic. The AFC usually has a round monogram on the reverse side that is missing from your specimen and the ranks are clearly different. "

As you can see, mine has the Rank & Name of the recipient, whereas the other does not, just the monogram.

The recipient was in the RCAF in WW2. Could this account for the difference?

Many thanks
