Commemorative Medallion Scandanavian Corps At Magersfontein 1899

Recommended Posts

Latest news...

The left medallion is bronze and the right one is made of tin. The coin store owner explained that the manufacturers used a softer metal to see how the stamps struck. 

I've asked around for the De Nummis article and after that the research would end for me regarding this medallion  :-)

 

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan......

I am sorry for you that it did not turn out to be a silver one......  But having a test striking is also great.....  

Is there anyway that you can remove that UGLY hanger that has been soldered on the back ?????????

The only other one that I have handled had an UGLY hole drilled in the top to hang it on the wall......

Mike

My unmarked medal. Missing its reverse text. I can't explain why. One can notice a faint shadow where it should be.

Also a very rare commemorative booklet from 1930 with the medal imprinted. Written by the corps founder Christer Uggla.
