    Here's another West Wall Medal that I have in my collection. Unlike the first one I posted that is plated, this one seems to be solid bronze, and a little thicker and heavier. I'd like to hear some opinions. I've noticed over the years a lot of these medals have ribbons that glow under a black light, even though the medal itself is good. Does anyone know the reasons for so many ribbons that glow? Thanks, Rob.

    This one appears to be the early 1st type made of tombac.
    There was supposedly a load of period medals found with
    envelopes, then possibly fake ribbons added. Packets
    are marked 'Carl Poelath, Schrobenhausen'.

    There must have been thousands in that hoard because
    they are still quite plentiful. Several years ago at a
    show here, a dealer was selling complete sets
    for $10 each.

    Always been one of my favourite medals.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Thanks, Steve! These are good looking medals. And, all of those period medals with envelopes, what happened to all of the original ribbons? The two medals I have do have original ribbons, but, it took some searching. Rob.
