Blut und Boden Table Medal - 1939 w/ original box
Blut und Boden Table Medal - 1939 - with original box - medal + box in very good condition
Pics below <item #155>
I saw a similar thread to this which had something to do w/ salted butter. I don't see the connection between blood and soil + salted butter tho
What is this? Is it authentic from 1939? Value?

Re: Blut und Boden Table Medal - 1939 w/ original box
"Blut und Boden" (Blood and soil) was an ideological concept that figured prominently in the Nazi ideology. (See here: Blood and soil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) It was also used as the motto for the Reichsnährstand, i.e. the national agro-political organization, which is why it appears here.
This is a medal for achievements in the field of stock breeding awarded by the Reichsnährstand's regional farmer's organization for the Sudetenland area.
Sorry, cannot comment on those aspects as they are beyond my field of interest. Certainly other members are more competent for this.
