my friend, no idea. One British city made some copies for their people but they were steel and not this one, this one is not a replica it is the real banana. I found one in a museum so I suspect it is pretty rare.

Looking at the original ribbon it is the civil version, most likely a city official involved in the coronation parade. Again absolutely authentic or I will refund in full.

Half of the money from this auction is going to Autistic children so it seems appropriate to post a link here to Dan's wonderful and moving song Flowers on the Moon.

I will make a donation to a charity for Autistic children whether I win this auction or not. Many thanks, Dan for putting the medal in the auction and giving us a chance to bid on it and to contribute to Mudcat at the same time. Many thanks also for your beautiful songs.
