Unknown german commemorativ coin/prize


Recommended Posts

Hello

I have this lot with german/american insignia and coins.

And im curious about the silver coin with german text. "Dem Sieger" on one side and "Die Landeshauptstadt Wiesbaden" there is no marking or year on it.

A mommemorativ coin for US forces after WW2? Or maybe it is a shootingaward or something?

I think US Army was well represented in Wiesbaden.

 

Thankful for any help here!

Hi Bombarder,

"... so i guess it was awarded early 1950-ies?"

There existed different organizations with there own numbering. And these badges had been awarded for one year or for three years of excellent service. For a correct date you need the associated document.

Thanks for the info Uwe, so this one could be from late 70-ies or whenever?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
