    Just another Q, how do you guys know it's a late war medal? What seperates the late ones from the early?
    Zinc was used in the manufacture of later war pieces as it was a cheaper base metal to use than tombac or brass. We can see the grey base metal where the finish has worn off so we know what it's made from and therefore making it a later war piece.

    Indeed - welcome. You answered your own question on where
    to start. These are highly under-rated medals IMO, and
    a great piece with a family connection to begin
    your collection.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Nice medal! These medals are still pretty cheap, not more than 30-40 euros. I better do not sell it. I still forgot the first EKII I ever owned and sold. I have seen many of them in my hand later but I still miss the first one. So better keep it.
