    Just added this very rare version of the Memelland Medal. It is the Straight G Type 2 found on pages 51-57 of Scapini's book The Memel Medal and is called "The Schreiber". A unique identifying feature of this variety is a die flaw found at the bottom left of the reverse. Ron

    Thanks Santi. Very happy to find this one. It was great to have the Scapini book to confirm some of the distinguishing details of this variety. Ron

    I know next to nothing about these medals, can you elaborate what the 'straight G' means please?

    Hi Adrian. There are two major types of the Memel medal in regards to the last "G" in the word "ERINNERUNG" on the reverse.
    Slanted "G" top picture and Straight "G" bottom picture. There are then subtypes of these. Ron
