    Hi Martin, actually, a ring devoid of the number can be fine. Not all were marked. Bear in mind these were also made in Spain.

    They are not a common award and are getting harder to find these days.

    Here is my example of the Tapferkeits- und Erinnerungsmedaille der Spanischen "Blauen Division", bought about 30 years ago when they were much cheaper than today. Made of zinc with a gilt finish.

    Cheers, Ade.
