Winterschlacht im Osten 1941/42 (Ostmedaille)

Article about: My last addition, first Ostmedaille, not as nice as some recent ones posted but you always remember your 'first'! How do you determine maker--I do not see a number on the ring?

    Nice purchase Simon! Unfortunately if there is no number on the ring it's going to be impossible to identify it to a maker.

    Nice example! Looks like some damage/distortion to the ring on the medal itself?

    Its a good one! As Adrian says there are no real distinguishing marks in order to recognise makers

    Glenn, to clarify, do you mean the outer edge ring of the medal?

    If the ring has a mark, it will be stamped into the ribbon ring. See the picture for an example. This one is marked '76' for Ernst L. Mueller, Pforzheim.

    Dave, hmm, I lost another response, so sorry if this is a duplicate.
    As an Eastfront afficionado, this medal has more meaning to me than most of the other more expensive and rare ones.
    Next one I get will hopefully have more 'flash', maybe a buntmetal.

    Roger, thanks, no mark. I like your collection.
