German troops in Paris.....or not.


Recommended Posts

Three more pieces from the lesser visited areas of my collection . Three of the same medal, two in bronze one in gilt finish. I am always suprised when on the rare occasions these do appear for sale they do not make much. They were struck in anticipation of the German troops entering Paris,but as we all know it never happened ,the medalists/authorities or whoever were a little premature in there thinking when they ordered the creation of these ! I believe that the majority of them were recalled but they still do appear from time to time. I think that there is even a bigger size example of about 60mm. I thought that they were all from the same die until I noticed the 'P' of Paris on the Gilt one. Ferg1.
