The blue enamel front is still in quite tidy condition and has the simple face with the wording:
PARIS 14 VI 1940….The date of German entry in to Paris.
There is a small .925 hallmark and makers logo …I think it says RI?
So it is my belief that this was made locally in France and sold as a souvenir.
I may be wrong but German silver standards were 800, 900 and 999. I may be wrong.
Both shoulders are decorated with an oak leaf cluster.
Observations or opinions welcomed
Only thing I do not have is a photo of the RZM markings—
TOUR STARTING POINT AND DATE - PRAGUE (airport collection if possible) morning of Tuesday 12th April
DURATION OF TOUR - 2 full days (one night spent away in Germany)
Camps incorporated into the itinerary - KL-Sachsenhausen and the only major Konzentrationslager to be primarily established for women, f.KL-Ravensbrück. Additional site(s) to be added once full itinerary has been completed. The visit to the Sachsenhausen camp will likely include a stop at the T-Gebäude ("T-Building"), site of the Concentration Camp Inspectorate from 1938 which now holds a museum.
