Germany WW1 1914 Hindenburg silver medal, victory over the Russian Army in the Battle of Tannenberg. Struck by Ludwig Christoph Lauer firm in Nürnberg; 33.3 mm in diameter .990 silver. Excellent overall condition with attractive patina.
A scarce WW1 era silver medal struck in 1914 by the Nürnberg firm Ludwig Christoph Lauer. The medal commemorates the German Army Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg liberation of East Prussia and the defeat of the Imperial Russian Army in the Battle of Tannenberg in August 1914. Nice depiction of the mighty German Army – a naked an apparently very cold Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg fielding a great two-handed sword – standing over a defeated and surrendering Russian bear.
A fantastic multi-colored patina throughout; no typical rim nicks or dings. Looks like some mark in the left field on reverse was scratched over a long time ago; the spot has darkened with new patina over it developing since. The medal weighs about 18.0 grams, about 33 mm in diameter; the rim is stamped SILBER 990. The medal came out of an old collection assembled several decades ago; a scarce type. Don’t miss your chance to add it to your collection!
