Maybe there is someone out there who can give me some information about a Medallion I recently aquired. The Medallion itsself, is alittle bigger around in diameter, than a 50 cent piece coin. It is a light bronze-gold color, but definetly needs polished. The medallion has a Schwastika stamped out in the middle, with 1943. engraved at the top and "Adolph Hitler" along the bottom. I've seen two different types of these so far. One of them is totally solid and the Schwastika is pressed into the metal just like a coin. Mine is stamped out all the way through the medallion. It definetly has some aging to it, so I don't think it's a copy. Any info would be helpful from another WWII Militaria collector.

Hey Nomine, my Dad came cross something like that not to long ago but it was a fake. But he took it to Twin Arrows at the Mall or you can take it to Gaylords store which is your best bet and 9 times out of 10 he can tell you if its real or not. I hope this helps. :-)

Yep, I have seen the replicas of the medallion that I have. From the photos that I have compared my medallion to, you can tell a slight difference between mine, and the replicas. There is a slight metal coloration difference between mine and the fakes and the stamped printing on the replicas seem to be more defined. I have posted a photo in the photo section of the exact 1943 Hitler Medallion that I am asking about.

Not to mention, Russo-Soviet WWII era militaria is a dime a dozen. It's nowhere near as collectable as WWII German Militaria. Damn sure doesn't cost as much to collect either.

Nomine, that medallion that you have, was passed around to quite a few German Officers as well as the Top Brass of the Wehrmacht and SS Death's Head (TotenKopf) Units to celibrate Hitler's 54th birthday. Technically, they were given as more of a momento or keepsake than anything else. They were not a part of regulation within the German uniform dress code. The medallion is made of stamped brass and tin. It's unknown really just how many of these were produced, however not too many of them seem to circulate in the market, unless you buy a replica, and yes you can tell which of the two which is fake and which is real if you lay them side by side. Also some of the medallions came with a leather cord and some had the dog tag style chains on them. I've seen this medallion go anywhere between 100- 200.00 depending on the condition. It's also believed many of these things were lost in the field or tossed away. It was a well known fact that many of German soldiers out in the theater, didn't give a damn about Hitler.

I think this must be a fake, because the name of Hitler is "Adolf Hitler" and not "Adolph Hitler", as people write in English. Or is anybody here who knows something about a medallion for English supporters of Hitler?
please reply
