    Hey TC I m going to venture it's a Russian Front medal for Spanish volunteers fighting on behalf of Germany. Another neat piece.

    Edit: correct terminology it is called the blue division medal

    Spanish medal Blue Division

    Brian is technically "more" correct but I think most people call them "Spanish Blue Division" medals...LoL

    I have one somewhere (LoL) with a bit of zinc pest. Can't comment on originality of these. Not expensive but if I remember correctly, they are sought after.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Actually, the official designation - as it appeared on award documents and medal packets - was Erinnerungsmedaille für die spanischen Freiwilligen im Kampf gegen den Bolschewismus [Commemorative Medal for the Spanish Volunteers in the Fight against Bolshevism]. (I know, that's a bit of a mouthful.)
