    Default I found a unknown medal ,what is it??

    I found this medal in a large collection which I receive and have a lot of Questions about the collection.
    This one I was not be able to find. Size Medal is a large 49 mm.
    Cleaned up the back now due Velcro problem and there is clearly a attachment device taken off new picture taken.

    Please advise.
    Thank you

    Looks like a one-sided plaque of some sort. I cannot tell
    if it's good or not though.........

    It looks, like a pre-war table medal. Probably for a shooting contest.
    But I do not think they had Velcro at that time.

    I would agree with the table medal, and also that the Velcro and glue are recent additions.

    The Velcro and glue where been put on by me to stick the Medal on an Display board.

    a nice idea, but the addition of glue and velcro may have detracted its value.

    Never stick anything to a medal or use any form of adhesive to display your collection.

    I don't believe this is a table medal, as they were die struck and have
    excellent reverses - the way coins are made - sometimes with
    wording or makers marks. This is cheaply made, whatever
    it is, and that is why I cannot comment on it being a
    period piece.

    Though if I had to guess, I'd say: fake/repro........

    I think you are right that it is a reproduction, only thing on my mind is why is it been reproduced as there is nothing to find about it.
    If it is a scarce item I can see that it has been reproduced for the people who like to make money out of this practice.
    It cost a lot of time and afford to make such a item whatever it may be.
    I put it in the box with the other fake's.
