Default Sudetenland with Marked LDO Box

Hello All,

Thought this one was so interesting, I had to pick it up. I first assumed it was just a Sudetenland Medal that had been stuffed into an LDO box usually seen with the Prague Bar. However, the bottom of the interior box is marked, "Die Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938" with a "L/??" stamp. I can't make out the stamp, and there is no marking on the medal - but cool, nevertheless.


Enjoy,

Eric

Bonsoir Eric

Nice find...I dont know if that Sudenten medal is a match for the box (they all look the same to me ) but the box is for a Deumer piece (L/11). You cant make out the LDO # but the big "D" (with a bumble bee in the middle) is Deumer's emblem. No idea if Deumer flower medals are marked but hopefully a more knowledgeable member will confirm wether your medal is a Deumer product or not

Cheers

JC

Hi Eric,

Nice medal and I especially like the box. Check the rim of the medal at the six o'clock. Deumer sometimes stamped their 'L/11' mark at that spot.

Best regards,

Tom

I really like that box! I also can't tell you if the medal is made by Deumer or not, though if it is marked like Tom said that will settle the issue. As a collector of Gablonz medals and badges, I have a few Prague castle bars (none of which can be confirmed as having been made in Gablonz) and quite a few Sudetenland medals that come in Gablonz maker marked envelopes, but I don't have any ability to distinguish individual makers. I don't generally collect Sudetenland medals by makers other those from Gablonz, but seeing yours really tempts me to start doing so!

Congratulations on a cool find.
Dale

Thanks, Tom.

Checked the rim and the ring - unfortunately no maker's marks.

I'll have to check my others and see if I can find a marked Deumer in the lot for comparison.

Regards,

Eric

Thank you, Dale! (I know I paid too much - but, the "cool" factor was there!)

is not that box for something else, like WB?
That sudetland medal would be very crammed inside with a proper lenght ribbon.

Hi Josef,

No, the box is clearly marked for the Sudeten Annexation Medal. And it doesn't even look like the box is deep enough to accommodate a wound badge. I think this box was just for the medal and probably did not even come with a ribbon.

Best regards,
Tom

Great piece. I believe it originally came with a nearly folded ribbon with the medal on top.

My opinion too : standard 24cm issue lenght folded ribbon and possibly even with an "onion skin" type paper wrapping
