    Default Anschluss Medaille

    Hi everyone, this medal has confused me a bit. It has a box but a few things that I'm wondering: it's gone quite black in places, is that normal wear for this medal? Also, there is a goldy/bronzey colour coming through on the chest of the eagle in one small area, is that what is under the silver and normal? In addition, two arms of the Swastika seem to be different sizes, can this happen? Any other comments would be appreciated also!

    Hi

    I have never owned one of these so I dont really have anything to compare it to, on first impression the detailing doesn't look to great to me especially the eagle, thats just my first impression opinion though, I would wait for more opinions ok !

    Cheers

    These medals were made of a tombac/bronze alloy(hence the 'gold' under the plating). This is then silver or silver alloy plated(so called German silver), and that causes the dark oxidation, or tarnish that you mention. Nice award.
