    Hi,

    Here is one new medal what i picked up from Dublin last weekend.
    I don’t know anything about French awards, so any feedback/corrections/information would be great!

    I love it, because the original ribbon. Like I understand it is pretty common award.

    Hi,

    Yes this medal is pretty common. What is less common is to find one attributed / en,graved on the reverse.
    Nice ribbon !!

    Cheers.

    The SSBM medal is indeed common but nice. It’s a membership medal. Some red cross medals were made for the 1870-1871 war and WWI.

    My new French medal. I think I paid too much for that but hopfully clasp adds some value on it as well.

    You really have an eye for the good stuff. The clasp with the "clapet" is great!!

    Very nice 3rd Republic LOH. Enamels practically intact! Good find!

    A very desirable colonial medal. The coin was made by the Paris Mint (1907-1913, "corn1ARGENT"), the mounting is private made, maybe Chobillon.
    The clasp is a Paris Mint made but the marks are for a private made.

    The LoH is very nice too.

    Thanks guys for your kind feedback!

    One more question – what would be the current fair market value for that colonial medal with the clasp, what I have?

    I picked up new Franco-Prussian commemorative medal with the clasp. Maybe some French collector can advise/educate me regarding the clasp – are these official and is there many different shapes of these (unofficially made?). Unfortunately this fancy one, what I posted up before is gone but start building my collection again.
    Also, is this the only medal where they used that clasp? If so, I have one single clasp over, if someone needs it.

    Regards,

    Timo

    This clasp is official and is for the volunteers (November 9 1911). You can sometimes find it on the WWI medal but a specific cross was created for the volunteers of this war. Different shapes exist. An unofficial medal for volunteers exists too. You can find this bar on other commemorative medals but unofficially as the combatant cross for volunteers exists.

    Hi François-Xavier,

    Am I wrong in saying that the clasp for volunteers for the 1870 medal should be of oriental style ? What do you think ?

    Cheers.
