Would the Westwall have been considered to be a campaign medal?

To my understanding, the Westwall medal, like the three medals for the "Flower Wars" (annexation of Austria, Sudetenland/Czech, Memel) were considered as Political/Party Medals (like the Mother's Cross, etc.), and therefore these were not allowed to be worn in public after the war.

Latest .......................... the complete set of originals and the complete set of fakes/fantasies.

Only the Memel is missing ........................... and that just existed as a 1960s drawing.  :)

Here's one that appears to be die struck in zinc alloy. Or as any COA author worth its salt would write: "materials and construction correspond with those used during the period".
