Nice unusual find Geoff. Knowing the age would help with further info. I know there were Polish prisoners of war in the country. Many of them stayed. I know one of them, a friend of a friend, so to speak.
That could be how it got here !

I found them for sale on Polish numismatic websites. There is other varieties: silver, gold, brass and for breeding other species.
By font design those medals has been issued between 1930-39.

Well as itís not gold of little intrinsic value, Iíd say yes. If you do it in short bursts it shouldnít do any harm.
I havenít got one myself but have read a few reports of results obtained. Just little steps grasshopper  Wink

Canít remember what or who posted the last report I read, he did say he did 1 min and checked then another 1 min and checked till it was just as he wanted it with some patena left. That sounds sensible to me.
