Default 1939 Reichsparteitag Table Medal

For your perusal another one from my "big medal" drawer. This time its the humongous medallion for the winner of 1939 war games which was to take place during 1939 Reichsparteitag of Friendship. In the unexpected turn of events was never awarded as the Fuhrer decided for the opposite approach.
Originally the medal was gold plated/gilded which was absorbed by the zinc based alloy but interestingly enough the varnish coating actually sealed it preventing from developing any zinc pest and retaining all the small details quite sharply.
Big and heavy is what best describes it. Few of those around to include 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner medals (gold, silver and bronze plated respectively).

cheers
Matt

A nice medal Matt and I especially like the framed Munich 1933 festival badge.

Yessir, Deschler it is. With the price point (for the other type) approaching the marked Deschlers I figured its no contest as to which one to get.
Helps me sleep at night like a baby.
cheers

And a Deschler ü Sohne or Deschler & Sohne variant?
The former is most desirable. Which is yours?

Dunno, its on the inside of the frame. But as the pic below would suggest we're in no danger of having those re-made no matter how they're designated.

Congrats, I just picked up 1939 Reichsparteig (ReichsNoparteig) Medal w/case a couple weeks ago too. Sadly the case did not protect it as well as yours since mine suffers from some Zinc Finish absorption. She's a Beauty that you have there.

Good question but I suspect as with the rest of them they seem to have that 33-45 blank spot in their collective memory. Oddly enough they're still at it: http://www.pichl-medaillen.com/

Well, lets see it- would make for a nice change from guys arguing about left track on a variant of their Panzer Assault Badge

Anyone else willing to share their 39 RPT non portable treasures?
cheers

Thats so true. I wish I could show some, but I mustn't be looking in the right places to find any. But all in good time.
