  3. Peninsula Commemorative Medal, Brunswick (Death’s Head) 17th Hussars. This medal was awarded by the Dukedom of Brunswick in 1909 to the descendants of the 17th (Death's Head) Hussars Regiment who fought in the Napoleonic Peninsular wars of 1809: -
  4. After a little more digging, I think the WAA rim markings may be W&A for the manufacturer Winter & Adler, Vienna.
  5. Nothing special but a little strange. My EK2, Kyffhäuser Union War Veterans Commemorative medal, Hindenburg Cross and Prussian Veterans Commemorative medal bar: - The EK2 is marked S-W. The Hindenburg Cross has an incorrect ribbon (looks like a Hanseatic Lübeck cross ribbon)
  6. 922F, Thanks for the feedback. The fiver is Zinc. I really do not know what the rim markings are, whether they are manufacturing markings or not . Would love to find out though.

  8. Wound medals from my collection with different rim mint markings. Does anybody know what these mint markings signify? This medal has no 2 mm red wound stripes and is marked 'B.18' The next medal has one wound stripe and is marked 'GW 18' This one has two wound stripes and is marked 'WAA 918'
