Nick,

Is my understanding is correct, that there are differences in the stamping of this medal?

Or just the same stamping tools, which are hardly used as time went by on and didn't had a "sharp/clear" stamping.

Do anybody know, if there were more then one set of stamping tools for this medal?

Considering the number of awarded (produced?) medals, hard to believe more then one stamping set...

BR, Chris

Several different dies for 3 677 minted medals?!

Is this possible?

Hmmm ...

I think everything inside zulässige Abweichung.

Nein? :)

Depending on the quality of the stamping tools, isn't it?

We are talking about a medal, which was minted in the 1870s. Maybe a time, where quality WAS an issue?

Of course ;)

Personally I think that all these micro differences can be explained by wearing of stamp (or medal itself).

IMveryHO of course.
