Anodized medals
« on: September 10, 2017, 15:01:10 »
Just wondering if anyone on here gets their medals dipped or anodized? I've seen a few older NCOs with really shiny medals (particularly the cpsm and UN medals). Just wondering what people's thoughts are.

Shouldn't need to, just a little brasso if they get tarnished or silver cleaner. A good court mounter should clean the medals for you before they're mounted.

Opinions vary,

. the problem she ran into was that he had them dipped without asking her if this is what she wanted. Is there any way to safely remove the dip coating and return the medals to their original state and finish?

I had my CD plated because when I received it, there was a big *** finger print in the finish. No one has ever questioned me or taken me to task over it.

I've known lots of troops that have gotten their gongs gold dipped.

Never heard of anyone having an issue over it either.
