    Default Nice early Westwall

    This is the type of item that makes this hobby so much fun for me. I was at a Saarbrücken flea market rummaging through a box of junk a guy had and this was on the bottom. A nice early bronze Westwall in good condition. 10 Euros. It was without ribbon so I attached one that was cut off a wartime unissued roll. Not expensive or rare or even all that special. But a nice one I was able to salvage and now sits in its rightful place next to its wartime brothers.



    Cheers,
    Johnnie

    Just like your Ost medal indeed not rare or special but non the less beautiful too look at, most collectors underestimate these kind of medals but in fact, for me personally, they got a very appealing design, beautiful example Johnnie, thanks for sharing.

    Thank you sir! I have always like the Westies. Not as sexy as the Ossies, but they are well designed and certainly convey the purpose of the award.
