Precious Metals

Military Medals

Honouring the bravery of the men and women who have fought and died for their country over the years, military medals deserve to be treated with the greatest of respect.

At Farcroft Restorations Group, we understand the sentimental value that can be attributed to these medals of honour, and carry out all our military medal cleaning and restoration works with the utmost care, in deference to the service of the individuals that earned them.

Our Medal Cleaning and Restoration Services

Due to the age of many of the military medals we encounter, our medal cleaning and restoration process always begins with a careful deep clean of the item to remove any contaminates and reveal the underlying condition of the metal, as well as its finish.

Where the metal is in good condition, we follow this cleaning and inspection process by polishing the medal to help maintain its lustre.

If cleaning exposes more damage than was evident on first inspection, we use our skills in metal restoration to restore the original appearance. Our extensive knowledge and experience in precious metal restoration enables us to restore all types of medals, including those made from gold, silver, bronze or lead.

Additional Medal Restoration Services

As well as working on the medal itself, our precious metals experts can repair the metal structure that connects it to the ribbon, including the suspender and bars.

Our primary aim is always to restore the original parts where possible but, where this is not achievable – such as where a suspension rod or ring has broken – we can offer appropriate replica pieces to suit the age and appearance of the medal.

Where the pre-existing ribbon is damaged beyond repair, meaning its ability to hold the medal is severely compromised, we can also provide replacement ribbons to match the original.

Years of expertise have led us to develop specialist techniques, enabling us to undertake many different types of restoration
