    Default Swiss Badge with Luger & Revolver ???

    Gentlemen,

    just received this small lot of badges.
    Any ideas on the Swiss one?
    Shooting competition?
    When were these issued?

    Thanks in advance!
    Helmet.

    Hi Helmet,

    You have a nice Swiss shooting-prize medal.

    I have one that is similar and is at the bottom of each of my postings.

    I have seen dated medals mostly from the 1930's through the early 1970's. A few from the early 1900's.

    Your medal is un-dated so you might need to research the name of the silversmith on the back of your medal to determine when he lived and made medals to try to guess a date/era for your medal.

    Swiss cantons had their own unique cantonal emblems (and some of them changed over time). Cities had their own crests to. Lusanne is the capitol city of the canton of Vaud.

    Thanks, Pete!
    Good info that I can base research on.
    Would "Brevete" be the silver smith or "PeKa".
    "PeKa" is also written on the front, right next to the Luger handle.

    Edit:
    Found some info here http://www.mikrolisk.de/show.php?sit...=8#sucheMarker
    The trade mark "PeKa" was registered in late 1934 it seems.

    Brevete, I believe, means something is patented on the medal. Maybe the design of the pin ???

    PeKa...not sure. Maybe the designer's mark ?

    Paul Kramer is the company where the silver medal was made.

    The " 0.925 " stamping means the metal is cast of :

    Sterling silver
    is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.

    Silver medals have 2 types of "value" :

    1. The scrap-metal value of the silver. You can use this web site to determine that based on 0.925 silver content and the total weight of the medal (minus a bit for the paint/enamel, etc.).

    2. Intrinsic collector value...which in many cases is more than the scrap-metal value of the silver medal.

    Pe Ka is the trademark for Paul Kramer.
    If it is made after 1918...it is a reproduction.

    I think that's not a shooting-prize medal, but the badge of a shooting club in Lausanne. The red and white emblem is the coat of arms of the town of Lausanne.

    Thanks, everybody.
    I also contacted a Lausanne based Luger dealer but got no reply.
    Anyway, if someone wants it, shoot me a PM.

    Cheers from Munich,
    Helmet.

    Hi Helmet,

    Once an item is indicated for sale, the owner would normally place a WTS ad in the Trader section and list a sales price. Our Moderators usually want folks to do that.

    Fine with me if the item is welcome in that section.
    Will place it there instantly.
    Remove it from there/here if it offends forum rules, please.

    Best,
    Helmet.

    Hi Helmet,

    No offense taken or meant.

    Many Members post asking for help and identification and sometimes even help with establishing a value.

    Once an Owner decides to sell and has a price, it is better in a new WTS ad.


    Best Regards, Pete...
