WW2 German Medallions

Post by Sugar Bottom Farms » Sun Jan 17, 2016 11:21 am

I am looking for any information about these two medallions.
They are about 1 1/2 inch in diameter and made of a Bakelite type material.
I think one commemorates a Russian battle.
Any help would be much appreciated.

the back of the first picture says "double battle of Bryansk and Vyazma in October 1941" the back of the second picture reads "As I fight the Jews everywhere for the Lord's work" the photo of the forth picture reads something like this " the German People thank the soldier for bravery".

Thanks for the interpretation.
Do you have any idea who would have issued these ?

That I do not know. I have my guesses but I also wonder if what you have is the pieces to make a mold for metal medallions. Just wondering. I sent an email off to a company that sells German WW2 military awarded metals. When the get back to me, I will update. OK?
