War Memel database of originals

Hi guys, until now there was a lot of confusion about this beautiful and rare medal. So, before my book will be ready for publication, I post here a little database of originals Memel for reference.
The medals are divided in "Tilted G" (4 different makers) and "Slanted G" (7 different makers).

Hope this can be of help for the collector community.


FIRST PART:
TILTED G

Thanks guys, I go on with the second part.
Today too I've seen on web some identifications of the Memel makers that are completely wrong, to avoid it happens again in two days I'll post all the pictures.

Default Memel medal

Hi just want to that this is an excellent informative site and could have saved me a lot of money had the internet existed when I first began collecting. I hope to post some pictures of my collection when time permits.

I found Antonio's thread extremely useful in determining my fake and original Memel medals so many thanks from me for your diligence.

Troy

The book "The Memel Medal" is now available in the Kindle version. A very nice feature for those who want to have the books on the iPad for shows and such.
