    Default Medaille fur Deutsche Volkspflege

    Hi guys, I purchased this social welfare medal as I love the look of the eagle on it and the medal generally. It feels nice and quite chunky compared to some others which was a nice surprise. Does it look ok to you? It is also maker marked "3" on the ring. Also, does anyone know what the red and white on the ribbon represents? (Is it along the lines of bandages and blood like the Red Cross?). Thanks!

    Another wise purchase, is the ribbon unused too?

    I picked this up for 60, yes the ribbon has never been on the medal! Adrian I apologise in advance if I bring on anohter heart attack for you, but with ribbons that have never been on the medal, would you leave it as it is or put it on?

    Haha!

    Personally I would leave it off in this case. I have put unissued ribbons on EK2s before but in those cases I actually bought quite a few for the sole purpose of having them to replace any short ribbons on newly acquired crosses.

    When a set like the above is obtained I would leave them as separate pieces and display them in a fashion which keeps them as they have been for this time. Obviously there is no problem joining them if need be or even sourcing another piece if you wish to hang it.
