Default Franco-Prussian Mini-Medal Lapel Set

Hi Folks:

Years ago in the 1980's in Germany...I picked this up. It's pretty cool Franco-Prussian mini medal Lapel Set. Nicely marked

Not nearly as nice as the example above, here is one I recently found in an antique shop. With a loose Long Service Medal.

Great group of minis.

Here is something that you might find interesting.
It's a scan from a Paul Kust catalog showing the combination that you posted above.
(although in a slightly different order)

Did someone file the maker name off the button on Willi's? Wonder why someone would do that?

Yes, the markings have been filed off. No idea why.

Greg, thanks for that scan. Interesting.
