    Default Medaille zur Erinnerung an die Heimkerhr des Memellandes

    Hi all,

    I have the opportunity to acquire a Memel medal which I miss in my collection. However, I have no experience in this medal so I would like to get your opinion. I have tried to compare this with other medals, and for me it looks genuine.

    Thanks
    Jonas

    These buggers are a minefield! So well faked! It needs a specialist to comment I think

    There is a useful thread here which compares some original and fake medals.

    Cracking link Adrian, thanks for that. Some wonderful reference material for anybody considering a Medaille zur Erinnerung an die Heimkerhr des Memellandes (Memel) award.

    Regards,

    p.s. From the information in the link, one would assume that the example shown here, is an original piece. I have noticed that some of the replicas have wider suspension rings attached to the top of the awards too, just to add another bit of information to the thread.

    Thanks Adrian, very useful. Looks like "mine" is an original one if comparing the those on the thread.

    Another question, what I have understood the Memel medal used the same red case as the Austria medal, but I’m not certain. Any opinion about this?

    Thanks

    Based upon the medals shown and compared in the linked thread I would also say yours in original.
