Re: Gold Medal for Military Academy

These two academy badges came with the document and the gold medal.

The one with the shield looks strange. Could this be a self made/home made badge?
The right one without shield is a late badge made out of german silver with one rivet.

best regards
Andreas

Better pictures of the gold medal and the badges follow, if my camera-battery has enough power.

Re: Gold Medal for Military Academy

This is only conjecture, but it may have been an unregulation, locally manufactured academy badge.

I saw a similar white MVOKU rhombus with the MVOKU initials, but have never seen one since. I don't know how to explain it otherwise...:confused:
