    Default 3 Medal Convolute & More

    Hi Everyone,
    I was fortunate enough on Saturday to turn up a three medal convolute, plus a RAD cap badge and tinnie / broach.

    4 year and 12 year Luftwaffe Service Medals both on ribbon with clips
    2nd form RAD cap badge from Arbeitsgau XXX Bayern - Hochland
    WW1- von Hindernburg tinnie / broach

    Finally a small mystery, Bravery award to a member of a Eastern Folk Group, looking at the ribbon it should be from the silver class. As you can see every last trace of the silver wash has disappeared (if it was ever there) I'm thinking of giving it a silver dip. What would members advise. Any advice welcome.

    Regards

    Nice haul Alec! Dipping the Ostvolk medal won't do anything to it. If the medal is made of zinc the silver finish has been lost to time and you're just left with the base metal, nothing you can do will restore the original colour because it simply isn't there.

    Thanks for the posts,
    Adrian, the more I look at the medal, the more I think its a bronze one on the wrong ribbon, I can't find a single trace anywhere on the medal of silver wash. I read usually the hanging ring retains some wash, but its bronze colour all over. I need another ribbon.

    Here's front & reverse pictures of RAD Cap Badge. The one I showed at the thread start has a quite black reverse - hard to bring out details. The pictures are from same cleaner badge.
