  1. Hello fellow medal enthusiasts, I have seen examples of this medal with the marking "BRONZ" in different locations. Others appear to be without markings. Some are impressed into the rim, near the 1 o'clock position; Others have it as part of the die pressing on the reverse of the medal, near the 7 o'clock position. Attached are some photos obtained from the internet with these markings. Is it known what the different locations and style of marking (or lack thereof) indicate regarding time frames of the minting, or the award of the medal? Thank you in advance for your help. G.
  2. I never gave the size of the swastika much thought....i.e. assumed it was nothing more than a design/balance consideration. I have however, always been intrigued by the fact that the eagles on the badges of the Kriegsmarine are facing to their right. I am no expert in heraldry, but I believe that right facing attitude is termed "dexter" (as opposed to "sinister" ....to the left). I believe "dexter" points or leads more toward the "honorable" than the sinister. The customs and rules of heraldry are complex, subtle, and like most things, regional variations exist. I certainly have no way of knowing how much consideration to such things was given while designing/approving these badges.....but my hunch is that those responsible were not ignorant of this custom, and it was done with purpose.
  3. Bob, Your stuff, call it what you wish; Nonetheless, you have a superior collection and, I thank you for sharing it! G.
  4. All presented are pleasing, each in their own way... I am a little worried however, about this talk of flogging..... I can't help but remember the quote "....rum, sodomy, and the lash"! G.
