    Commemorative German coin/'medal' to honour the soldiers of the different branches of service in the two world wars.

    It's an interesting piece, I've never seen one like this before. Does anyone know what the '1000' means?

    The 'Thousand Year Reich'

    The quality of silver is (in Europe) given in thousandths. Therefore 1000 could mean pure silver. Sterling silver is actually an alloy. I think it's "925" and so has 7.5% of base metal added to harden it.

    Of course, the 1000 could be a coded reference to the Thousand Year Reich, or something entirely different.

    Cheers,

    I thought about the silver mark but would a medal like this be made of pure silver?

    The Thousand Year Reich is a possibility but wouldn't it be a little more prominent? This is a commemorative medal for the armed forces, why stick a small '1000' in there?

    Just speculating of course and searching for some answers!

    Seller is calling this medal as SILBER A-1000 PUNZE - whatever it means but it seems to be related to this small number 1000 on the avers? May be Patgore can comment?

    But I´ve decided that I like this medal and I´ll try to buy it

    'Punze' refers to a stamp or stamping tool.

    No reason why pure silver (versus 92.5% sterling) shouldn't be used for a (customer-pay) commemorative medal. Price would be slightly higher, but slightly softer metal shouldn't be a problem.

    Maybe someone with better German than mine could say whether Punze is the term usually used for the mark indicating quality of silver.
