Here is my 1836 Davos.  Unlike Rod, I only have this one, but I think it's a beauty.  PCGS SP65.

Very nice medal!  I believe some would prefer your one to my three.

AR

Mintage: 
Rarity: RRR 
Engraver: HH 
Note: The variety formerly listed in WM (lead) is a later copy.

I am inserting my picture used from a url on another forum because this site is not allowing me to insert anything but very small (kb) pictures directly from my PC. If anyone could explain, I would appreciate your input.

They change, but here is my current favorite medal.  I love the image of this soldier at the ready with his hand on the hilt of his sword.  I think some of these medals are small works of art.

R-1016      

No Date Le Locle, 41mm, BR

PCGS SP65

Though some people have stated in the past that they don't think this is a good looking medal, I have always been somewhat fascinated by it. I purchase when I can as long as the price is right.

Hugo Eiberle must have been a prolific entrant, I have at least 8 modern shooting medals awarded to him.

Ahh... I swear I looked over those images 10 times and didn't see the dates until just now.

:drool:

BEAUTIFUL. Remind me again what the H rarity designates? More or less rare than "R" (etc.)?

Per the Richter catalog-

H:          Common: more than 50 specimens available. Important: See also "Market availability".

R:          Rare: <50 specimens available.

RR:       Very Rare: <25 specimens available.

RRR:     Extremely Rare: <5 specimens available.

RRRR:  Unique

UN:      Unknown. Most probably medals have been struck, but so far, no medal has appeared on the market.

 

Based on my 38 years of collecting and my Father's 56 years of collecting, the specific number values above may be somewhat fluid.
