    Default German Victory Medal - Den Kämpfern für die Deutsche Freiheit

    Hi

    Would anybody be able to give me the definitive answer on whether any of these medals made it past the prototype stage? Information on here suggests it didn’t Western Front Medal - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums
    There are two currently for sale on the internet. One is with Snyder’s treasures (yes alarm bells are ringing). The other is here. This site is run by an Ebay trader who lists his Third Reich stuff there. His Ebay feedback is all good, but I just can’t see how one of these medals can be available, particularly when he’s wanting only £175. Is it a definite fantasy item?

    Prototypes were made at best.

    I would never buy one as the odds of finding and original and having some kind of yardstick to compare it to are virtually nil.

    Save your money.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade pretty much sums it up. It goes the same for all alleged prototype awards.

    The book "medals of Hitlers Germany and the Third Reich" talks about all of the proposed and prototype awards. A good investment into a book.

    Yes it is, it is a bit expensive but it has 300 full colour pages with good information.

    Thanks, I've managed to track down a copy. As you say there's some good information on page 71 regarding this award.
