    Default Recent Hurtgen Find Help Needed

    Hi all I need some help with this item which I recently found in the Hurtgen in a fox hole. When I found it it was covered in dirt and resembled a large coin. After cleaning it it reveled the Kaisers head profile and some inscriptions. It was probably produced on mass and presented as a special edition. Its made of bronze I believe.

    I presumbe it belonged to a soldier and had been passed down from his father? Maybe it was carried as a good luck charm or had been presented to the soldlier

    Its not normally the type of material that I collect as I am mostly interested in ordnance and personal equipment but it is an interesting find and quite unusual. Any information on this medal would be gratefully received. The attachment are not working so visit my album to see the phots thanks!
