I've recently picked up my latest acquisition, the German variant of the Franco-Prussian War medal. It's in emaculate shape, with the appropriate engraving on the rim (With Captured Guns), and has very little, if any, corrosion on it. I have noticed though that the medal seems to have been fastened on backwards, although I've seen other examples of this with the same medal. My newest addition has a tri-fold design, along with what appears to be the original open clutch clasp stiched onto the back.
My questions are:
-Is the tri-fold variant harder to come by than the standard design (the normal length of ribbon)
-Does the tri-fold design increase the value of this medal?
All opinions are welcome...Thanks for looking
