Title Lower Rhine SA prize medal
Nationality German
Period c 1943
Sold

The prize was awarded for the Wehrmannschaftwettkampf, which was a competition run for the Stormtroop home guard or Wehrmannschaft. The obverse has the logo 'Dem Sieger' (to the victor), together with the SA motif , and a scene from the Rhineland. The reverse details the area of the competition, Nieder (Lower) Rhein, and the competiton's nature.

This rare medal has an aluminium centre and two outside layers of what would appear to be bronze veneer with a gold wash finish. An interesting piece from a numismatic point of view, showing an extremely complex technical construction, no doubt the result of war time shortages of bronze.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
