O sorry, and merry Christmas and a Happy New year. ;-)
Good call & a great explanation. Thank you. Stewy
Thank you Sveimhugi.
You're wright it is not a maker marked 23. I should have seen that. I should have taken a look in Sascha Weber's book.
I will check my other makermarked 93 tomorrow and compare them.
Do you know internetsite's where to find more eastmedals to purchase.
I'm still looking for following makers: 8,29,45,51,53,63,72,77,85,90,92,108,117,120, and the non maker marked:
2,8,23,57,66,84,98,138, I am also looking for all the LDO marked East medals.
I dont know how many LDO makermarked eastmedals there are to collect.
Thank you again for your reply Sveimhugi.
Hello again Benjamin
Hehe yes im pretty sure you got 2 of them (OM 93) now
Well I started off buying allot on Websites, but moved more and more to forums like this one, much cheaper most of the time
Im sorry I got no secret Websites full of OM´s that I could direct you to, just those who everybody knows, like Butschek, Weitze, M. Berlin and loads loads more, just google and you will see
Sascha´s book is great but not flawless, there are some errors in it. (IMO)
Regarding the ones you are missing:
The OM 2 would be a great find, never seen one myself, just the Pouch, if it not maker marked its going to be hard to tell if its a matching pair. We would have to find some other sets to compare.
The OM 8 is a hard one to find as well (IMO to a error in Saschas book), I someone here sees this and ownes one, I would love to see it and get some reference pictures.
The OM 45, 53, 72, 90 and 120 I have never heard of that they exist, if you have some information that states otherwise I would love to hear it. (not ment in a sarcastic way, I really would like to know )
The OM 117 is another error in the book (IMO) and does not exist either, that is its not matched with the right maker, its genuine one but not a Hugo Lang.
But still very desirable as a "variation" IMO.
The rest is out there, just have to wait I have many of the ones you are missing double, but im not sure if I want to sell them yet, but I am always open for trading, if you like you can send me per Private msg a list of the ones you have and are willing to trade

Ohh.. yes and I forgot, LDO marked OM´s I have not seen yet, well there is the L/15 (Floch) but not that I know of besides of that one.
Hello Sveimhugi i have some pics of a maker marked 53. I will put them on here soon. The OM 45, 53,72, 90 and 120 i got from a list on another forum.
And i printed that list for myself when i started collecting the OM. So leaving these makers out wil narow my search. ;-)
I also have an OM isue bag wich i found on internet with a maker that is not listed in Webers book but it is listed in the book "The awards of the heer" by Dietrich Maerz / Bernd Hartmann .
I wil also put a pic of that isue bag as well. Also i have an unmarked East medal with its isue bag and i wil
put some pics here of that one as well. Maybe we can confirm that the medal belongs with that isue bag.
I will let you know wich ones i have double but you wil probably have them in your collection.
I wil keep on searching for the rest of these medals because i like them a lot.
Groetjes from Belgium.
Thank you Harryamb2.
