    Grossly under-appreciated piece and a wonderful addition to your collection. Congratulations on a great item.

    "ridden hard and hung up wet"
    Kind of like my old girl friends did me.

    Hi Dave,

    In the photos the base metal colour looks grey which suggests something other than brass but you have it in hand so maybe the photos are showing something different?

    I agree with this - I've recently started to collect these and the superb quality of the design and manufacture is only really apparent when you have them in hand.

    Thank your to Dave to showing his acquisition - I've got a similar one but awarded at the München Reichsnährstand Ausstellung (exhibition) of 1937, for Gasalzene (salted) Butter, also in bronze. Comparing with some other Reichsnährstand medals, which are certainly of bronze or brass, I think these ones are made of zinc and plated. On Dave's medal, it looks like the plating has worn off on the high points. Surprising given that it has kept its case of issue, but then the case has had a hard life so who knows.

    I'd like to know more about these - such as whether there was also a gold medal - clearly there were silver and bronze but I haven't seen a gold one yet.

    One question to Dave - the medal that I described above is around 38mm/1 1/2" in diameter, is that the same as yours above?

    Regards,

    Philip
