    Default Blood Order Medal

    Here's a Blood Order Medal I picked up in Europe back in 1972.
    It was issued to:
    Hartz, Herbert v., federation upper country, ii-battalion, 8.Minenwerfer-Kompanie, blood medal Nr.250 to 9.11.1933. Wish I had the ribbon for it but the medal is rare enough. each medal was individually stamped with a number and recorded as to which recipient received which medal. His is #250.

    The large rim is due to MY lack of photography skills. I'll get a better straight-on pic on for you.

    There is no doubt to its authenticity. Good buy.

    Thanks; it is a beautiful medal. I'll try and get some better pics of it posted this week. Finally got a new camera.

    Sorry to come late to this thread but this BO is a reproduction.

    I totally agree with Erich. This is an old fake.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The 1923-1933 write is all wrong.

    Being a newbie around here I was looking at some past threads and this one really stuck out as a bad repro. Colt, 2000.00 is really cheap for an original BO these days!
