Militaria and WW2 history forum and topsites. Sõja ajaloo portaal.
Apologies if this has been answered before via another thread. I have a pretty bare slouch with green eyelets. I’m just wondering if that is a WW2 production trait. The pug is missing as is the liner and chin strap. The brim has an covered edge. There is no push button stud - clip only.
And an unrelated question - did CARR provide studs for WW1 slouches as well as WW2?
I am a young collector and this is the second medal i have purchased, from Phoenix Militaria in London - Ivor was nice enough to let me photograph a few of his items and we had a nice chat,
But i have my reservations about the Ostmedaille i purchased
can anyone help ? im assuming it is not zinc because there are no bubbles present.
The surface looks sort of strange and scratched ?
Any help much appreciated, i know it is a very common medal.
