Greetings all,

I am looking for a photo of the rim inscription on some of these bronze Prussian Campaign Medals which states" Aus erobertem Geschutz". Are these around? Anyone have one for sale?

Many thanks,

Vince

Thank you very much. The one medal of this type I have does not have the inscription around its rim. I am told it is a jewelers copy as used on medal bars. Does this make sense to you?

Thanks again,

Vince

Yes,  so called Zweitstücke (private purchased second pieces) without inscription are known. They were used for medal bars or as replacement for lost or damaged medal.

Tom is right, and there are numerous variations in the jeweler pieces, and a subculture of collectors who like them.
