    I think I can explain , I have been looking through some various old catalogues.
    some medals can be bought with different finishes, glanzverzinkt, oxidiert, bronzed and so on..
    this is just an example , not proof.
    But maybe this is oxidiert. Or chemically oxidised using hydrocloric acid, adding some powdered down zinc slag. a little like this...Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen hymmen and co.

    Im no metalurgist or anything.. Just reading a lot Waelz process - Wikipedia
    The germans invented most of the techniques used world wide today...
    No shortage of zink with the germans about, they even recovered zink dust from forge chimneys...

    Just got this of wiki:
    Interference-based coatings were invented and developed in 1935 by Alexander Smakula, who was working for the Carl Zeiss optics company.[25][26][27] Anti-reflection coatings were a German military secret until the early stages of World War II.[28] Katharine Burr Blodgett and Irving Langmuir developed organic anti-reflection coatings known as Langmuir–Blodgett films in the late 1930s.

    This is also something the germans could have used. Zinc plating to create a rough black or grey surface.
    What is black zinc treatment?

    Lots of anti slip and anti-reflective paints contain over 95% zinc.

    You do know that you are allowed to think of things to say and then type them altogether in a big mass of letters and words.

    Such things are called paragraphs .

    I don't think anyone is saying this "coating" didn't exist or that someone put it on. What I am saying is that I have yet to see a true war time example. I would love to see period examples or photos.

    If there is period evidence or someone with experience can shed more light on the subject....that would be great and we all learned something new.

    Although a gut feeling thinks it was period applied (not factory done), until there is more info, I am obliged to say it is still an enigma and "?" to me
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
