Unknown Medal, Need Help!

Article about: I bought this medal a couple days ago and I have no idea what it is, the weird thing is that it has been made in 1942, in Oslo, and it can't be German. And since Norway was occupied in 1940

    It has a high content of silver in it, it reads 998 S, which I think is the silver code(?)

    That's a good point. Now you have a mystery to solve. Maybe someone else on the forum will have more info. Good luck Vegar!

    Yes, in the market, anything that is 998 they say it is "pure silver" 99.8%. Sterling is only 92%. Doesn't get any better than that. No problem Vegar, take care.

    Hi, nice medal!

    "David Andersen - Oslo" is a goldsmith situated in Norway, and has been around a LONG TIME...
    I know he made lots of medals and awards... He also had a shop in Sweden.. So it is possible that the previous owner got it when he/she came to neutral Sweden to escape the Germans

    Item Nr. 176 in the link below is not the same but almost the same as yours..
