Was wondering if anyone knows anymore about this interesting medal?
The so called German Victory Medal with 1939-1940 on it, was manufactured in anticipation of Allied defeat in the west before the campaign with Russia, there were also ones manufactured with "1939" and "1939-1941" on the medal. What really intrigues me is the medal ribbon, its an Iron Cross 2nd class ribbon. Surely Hitler wouldn't have allowed this as it was a campaign medal. But in my research someone said that the ribbon bar at the bottom was the proposed ribbon for the medal.
What do you guys think?
The actual style of the ribbon for the award?
Today Europe. Tomorrow the World. - Adolf Hitler
