A complete piece! The Sudetenland medal was awarded to all German military personnel who participated in the occupation of Sudetenland and the occupation of Czechoslovakia in March 1939. It is constructed out of a die stamped tombak base that has been bronze washed. The round shaped obverse depicts two unclothed men (one has a chain around his right wrist, the other is holding an NSDAP flag on a pole) that are standing on a pedestal that has a German national eagle on it. The reverse reads: “1. Oktober 1938” to the center and is surrounded by “Ein Volk Ein Reich Ein Führer” (October 1 1938 One People, One Empire, One Leader). To the top of the medal is a soldered on loop and ring. Accompanying the award is approximately 7 5/8 inches of red, black and white rayon ribbon. The medal measures approximately 1 ¼ inches in diameter. The bronze wash is in beautiful condition and the detail is superb! The award and ribbon come housed in its original issue tan paper packet that is maker marked, in black print: “E. Ferd. Wiedmann Frankfurt a. M. = S 10”, within a thin rectangular border. The packet measures approximately 4 1/8 inches tall by 2 ¼ inches wide. A nice crisp piece!
