Hello,

I have following question, is it right that every original medals second class for braveness FJ all versions have the same weight of around 18g.

Exactly is my question for a piece of the first version second class FJ without beard, which has 23g with ribbon. I think this not a good sign!

regards

Second class - silver? There were many weights and manufacturers - you have zinc, bronze with silver wash and solid silver content - each of these would have a different weight. There was also some variations on the suspension loop as well - so many variables to make "correct" weight an issue...

Hello,

I've taken the weight of my Silberne Tapferkeitsmedaillen 2nd Class.

Type 1849-1859: 18,1 g.

Type 1859-1866: 17,5 g.

the first, including ribbon (it is originally sewn to the piece, so I haven't removed it); the second, without ribbon.

I hope this could help.

Best wishes,

Elmar Lang
