Reference Systems

R =Jürg Richter

M =Jean Martin

K =Kurt Käppeli (used only if in neither of the above)

DK =Delbert Krause (used only if in none of the above)

ED =Erwin Dietrich 1946-70 listing of 33mm medals ( “ “ “ “ “)

--  =Not Listed in this catalog                        

 

Metals: AU=gold; AR=silver; BR=bronze; WM=white metal (aluminum and base metals); GAR=gold-plated silver; SBR=silvered bronze; GBR=gold-plated bronze, CN=copper-nickel. Rarity: R=quite scarce; RR=seldom seen; RRR=extremely rare to less than 10 minted or known; RRRR=unique.

 

I indicate “original case” only if I’m sure, i.e. the case is embossed, etc. I have on hand many old un-embossed (or otherwise unidentifiable) medal cases that will fit many of these. If you want a case with a medal, and I have one that fits, add $2 for additional packing and postage.

 

For the Richter Katalog see “Books and Albums” section. Richter is in the process of writing an updated Katalog.  When he completes this (schedule unknown), I will have it available.
