Hey Tony,

there whas nothing attached to it (not that i know of)

I bought it like it is.

I have the same idee about it being a commemorative coin.

It is WWI and i bought it because of my interest in the German WWI navy but i have never

seen one like it before.

Perhaps it is a Jutland commemorative.

Edit: I thought the marks might have been symbolic smoke on the site of the battle. On closer inspection, it just looks as thought it has been knocked about badly.

Whatever it is, I like it, too.

Hello taucher,

I would concur that this is a WWI era commemorative naval medal and that Jutland is a good guess. I notice that in the picture in post #2 that there appears to be a point of land and a lighthouse. No doubt this has a significance which may provide the answer.

Best wishes,

Hmmm.... does anyone not think that this item pre-dates WWI ??

If you look at the ship, it more resembles the USS Maine than the

warships that took part in the battle of Jutland. Perhaps this item

commemorates a foreign tour like TR's "Great White Fleet" PR campaign

of 1907. I really do believe this item is older than you think.
