Article about: Is this one OK? The bubbling effect has me somewhat worried. Unmarked. [

    You have a really nice medal. I like the "bubbling" affect, and your is two toned. I have one that is simply flat grey.
    I always loved these pieces! They were designed by a German soldier. If memory serves me the ribbon states.
    The black line is for the column of German soldiers, the white represents the snow, and the red represents the dead
    Russian soldiers. I especially love the Weimar Eagle with the detailed scalloped feathers. This medal is simply a work
    of art! Who doesn't love a potato mashed resting under a helmet?

    You have an original zinc medal HC no worries with this one.

    I thought the ribbon colours represented red for blood, white for snow, black for the dead.
