Default Ww1 plm

No need in telling the story about the soldier that brought this back, allegedly. I believe this one to be real. It weights 9/10 of an ounce and is marked silver on ring and at top of medal. Itís two piece construction with the holes. Thoughts?

Can an admin change me title to PLR instead of PLK? Maybe add Blue Max? Thank you

I will give what info I have after I have enough comments on the piece. A wealthy Major who was prior to the war a Comptroller to NY and a doctor somehow obtained this piece. He was assigned to the staff of the 1st Infantry Division and also assigned to oversee the Red Cross. All of his medals come with it.

I would like to hear the story also!

By the way "PLM" is the usual abbreviation for this item. I am not so certain that this piece has anything to do with Wagner as a manufacturer.

Best regards,

It is a Godet/Schickle. I fixed the pics and loaded them directly to the server for easier viewing.

Not wartime Godet: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...ight=Study+PlM , perhaps "Schickle" (discussed in the asame thread. although that attribution is uncertain). "Silber" is seen to suggest inter war manufacture: https://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/for...d.php?t=917880

Thank you all. Are these still in the $3,000-5,000 range?

I don't like it. It's not a Godet. It is what has been called a Schickel.

Look at the tail feathers and the crown.

Price? I offered a Godet PLM that was stamped 835, but in all other aspects identical to a wartime PLM. No one wanted to pay $3K for it. So I would think it unlikely that a Schickel would generate $3K-$5K.

Indeed- there is a Schickel on ebay just like it right now for an about $8K more than it is worth.

How much? About $1.5K would be what I would value it at.

I like it... and itís of 20s-30s manufacture and a known example imo. I wrote Godet but Schickel is correct. Itís in the Godet pattern in many peoples opinion.

Itís not wartime and not worth $6000-8000 in my mind but worth more than $1500. You can disagree, that perfectly fine. Thatís what life is all about.

Hereís an example on eMedals.

I probably would have bought your PlM for 3k

It was kind of weird- nobody seemed to want it. I have several Wagner/Freidlander PLMs, but only that one Godet. Iím glad I have it, as it looks like it has genuine wear (and itís a great Godet reference piece).
