    Order of the Lion and the sun?

    Order of the Lion and the sun?

    Thanks oamotme. That was the Shah until 1907. I wonder why his name appears on a medal dated 1941?

    Order of the Lion and the sun?

    Thanks Paul! So I got it all right. Would be interesting to know, how many were awarded to Wehrmacht personel in 1941.

    Thanks for your reply on my question. Farsi has a different numeral system, as I understand it. Please take a look here to see, how I came to 1320. https://www.omniglot.com/language/numbers/persian.htm Also the year you calculated is after the Islamic Lunar Calendar, while the medal is dated in Iranian Solar Calendar. That would be 1941 for 1320 or 1954 for 1333. Why is the front and back of my medal opposite? Good question, I would like to know too.

    Dear Friends, interesting reading, even after 5 years, since I just obtained one of these and doing some research. The German designation for this medal is "Silver Military Merit Medal for Foreigners" ( silberne Militär-Verdienstmedaille für Ausländer ). Is the year on my medal 1320? I'm not so good with arabic numerals... regards Arne

  15. Dear All, I just was offered a Portuguese VM and tried to ID it, but have to admit that I'm a little confused by the different types. It looks somewhat like Reproduction type-4? I would be very thankfull for your advice!
