    Unusual FJi 50year Signum Memoriae.


    Recommended Posts

    Hi Gents,

    I bought this because it had a nice ‘bravery medal’ ribbon on it. I didn’t look to close at the medal itself, which was particularly dark. The suspender looks unusually long too.

    I gave it a little rub tonight and it’s a white metal 🤷‍♂️ I don’t think it’s silver which would normally clean up really easy…

    also there is no (A) or other stamp on the rim…








    For comparison 👇




    I had a couple of white metal examples of bronze British ww2 stars which it was suggested were a tailors sample… maybe this is also.


    Any thoughts welcome as always.

    Judging by the color (especially the back) it seems to be made of silver-plated zinc, where the plating has been lost over time.
    There is a zinc version of this decoration as well as the Kriegsmedaille and the Military merit medal made at the end of the First World War.

    In my opinion an interesting piece and not easy to find.
