    Default Médaille de la Résistance!

    Hello guys

    I just thought I'd share my 'Médaille de la Résistance' or simply 'Medal of the resistance'. Roughly 64,000 were handed out, around 25,000 of which posthumously which tells you they didn't exactly give them away. The Latin on the reverse reads 'The Fatherland does not forget'.

    Not exactly a rare medal, I'm not really that sure about its value but they're not seen everyday so I thought it was worthwhile sticking on here.

    Let me know what you think
    Cheers
    Tom

    Nice medal. Plain and simple design. I used to own
    one of these back in the late 1970s........

    I don't know the current value of it, though likely not
    too much, maybe $40 or $50.........
    Regards,

    I've seen them go anywhere from $35-60 depending on the bidding action that goes on...I got mine for $36 a little while back...you'll see that they pop up on ebay every so often
