    Is it gold plated? Can you describe the history of these two medals? I have never heard of them. Interesting.

    Stewy, you are right. There were two issues of this medal. The first was made of bronzed brass. The second issue was made in 44 during the rebuilding of Reich defenses and it was made of zinc.
    The medal I started the thread with is an early bronzed brass issue.

    Hello NSDAP42,

    is that a Hitler signature on the bottom reverse on the gold plated West Wall medal?

    Hi Hans, nice to see you here

    I have not seen this version of this medal before but I would say the signature would be that of Konstantin Hierl, head of the RAD?

    Cheers, Ade.
