WH Czech-occupation- (ie. 'Anschluss'-) medal: '1. Oktober 1938' being an attractive and just minimally tarnished example that comes stored in its bordeaux-red-coloured- and/or non-maker-marked etui as issued
This medal (ie. 'Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938') was awarded to all members of the armed forces that participated in the German occupation of Czechoslovakia that started on: '1. Oktober 1938' and is a very attractive and/or detailed- (albeit issued- and/or simply hardly or even never worn-) example having great pronounced detail. The medal on offer here has a very nicely preserved, (bright)golden-yellow-toned finish showing hardly any tarnish nor staining: it has, however, never been cleaned nor polished and truly retains all of its period golden-toned finish (as can be seen on the pictures). The detailed medal came mounted onto its confectioned- (ie. pre-folded-) ribbon (ie. 'Bandabschnitt') that still retains its copper-based 'clip' (for mounting the piece on a tunic). The medal came with- (ie. came stored in-) its typical, bordeaux-red-coloured etui (which comes in an equally nicely preserved condition): this etui is truly void of any real damage but does show some minimal age- and/or handling-marks (as can be seen on the pictures). The golden-coloured eagle-design on the top of the etui is, however, naturally also nicely preserved: it is not damaged nor denazified or alike but just shows some minimal age and/or staining as to be expected. Simply a very attractive and complete Czech 'Anschluss'-medal-set that is - I deem - accordingly priced!
