Recommended Posts

arantxa

I got his many years ago with about 10 others in a box at the local auction  swapped the others out ...I wondered if this was done in the second world war with the German visiting the site of former battles. The metal is right and ive seen Abbeville on british ones  can some one tell me about the German regt   Or was the Abberville put on later as its different style of script the coins are the right date pre 1916 and some one had polished it the bullet maybe he was wounded
