Re: My first Urkunde

Mike - CONGRATS!!! in acquiring your first award document...very nice. The tarnishing on the silver medal, is that because it is made of silver or something else going on with it?

Re: Merit Medal Of The National People's Army.

hello gentlemen, the oxydation of the silver-plating of the 70ies medals is common, sometimes you really believe it could be made of solid silver... they got rid of the problem with the late 80ies cupro-nickel medals.

Re: Merit Medal Of The National People's Army.

charlet - Thanks for your follow up post, appreciated. :thumbsup

I know presenting silver content medals to members of the NVA and MfS was scarce by the 1970s. You never know what a collector may have in their collection from this time period. :thumbsup
