R701a Geneve
Exercices de l'arquebuse et de la navigation
1897
AR
51mm
Vintage: 8
Rarity: RRR
Engraver: Hugues Bovy, Geneve

Notes: These medals were only awarded with engraving, which makes them unique. The only differences, however, are the different years on the obverse and the engraving on the reverse.

I just acquired this beautiful and extraordinarily rare medal. I was aware of the rim imperfections but due to the fact that there is only 8 of them and each is unique in regards to the engraving, I was happy to purchase it. My Father has 1 in FDC condition and now I have 1 too. Between us, we own 25% of the total population!

Hi all,

I believe these reference books are for German shooting medals, but does anyone know where I might be able to locate copies of these books:

 
Steulmann, Gert:  Die Schützenmedaillen und Abzeichen der deutschen und österreichischen Bundesschießen von 1861-1934 und 1880-1908. 

Slg. Peltzer, R.F.:  I. Freimaurermedaillen und -zeichen. II. Schießmünzen und Schützenmedaillen, Jagdmünzen und -medaillen. III. Verkehr. 

 

Thanking you in advance,

Stay safe and healthy everyone,

Matt

Hi Matt,

 

I have copies of both of the books you are looking for. The Peltzer is a single book and the Steulmann is a set of 2 books. They were not that easy to find as I remember. I have no reference for you to locate but will let you know when and if I find any copies.

Actually, the Steulmann book you mention is 1 volume but there is another book. Attached are pictures for your reference for assistance in finding.

I recently got a new camera/lens, so the picture may look slightly better than previous ones.

This medal / cigar cutter seems to be quite rare. It is from the Luzern 1901 Federal Schützenfest. Between myself and Jürg Richter, we have only seen 2 of these, mine being 1 of the 2.
It is unmarked in every way regarding metal composition and engraver.

I recently received the new 3rd Edition Richter Catalog and am extremely happy to have this great book!

The catalog per Jürg Richter has approximately 200 additions/corrections throughout but the main differences this 3rd Edition has when compared to others is:

1. Languages: English and Chinese 

2. There is a generous Introduction including many illustrations about the history of Swiss Schützenfest. This portion is very well done!

3. At the beginning of each Canton grouping there is a page dedicated to the history of the Canton.

4. Next, after the Canton history, there are a couple of medals that are highlighted with allegorical and historical descriptions.

It is a wonderful edition and will in my opinion, increase the popularity of the hobby for English and Chinese speaking collectors because of the translations and the added histories. While the catalog is still just that, a catalog, the added histories, multiple historical pictures, Cantonal histories as well as the added information regarding the few medals at the beginning of each Canton group will enable the collector to gain added more knowledge and appreciation for this great field of collecting.

I believe that this same 3rd. Edition is available in German and Chinese translation but I have not spoken to Jürg directly about my assumption.

Price: 85 Euro

Here is the catalog page from the Battenberg Verlag site:

 

Swiss shooting thalers and shooting medals - cover
 Keh Wee Kwang | Jürg Richter | Marcel Häberling

Swiss shooting thalers and shooting medals

瑞士 射击 塔拉尔 钱币 和 射击 节 纪念章

 

Published by Battenberg Verlag

ISBN: 978-3-86646-193-2

Edition: 3rd edition 2020

Illustrations: colored throughout

Hardcover: 632 pages

Format: 23.5 x 28 cm

 

 

This book deals with the history as well as the historical background of the marksmen and marksmen medals of Switzerland.
Over 2500 thalers and medals from the beginning in the early 17th century to 1960 were listed in detail and the majority were shown. This book thus becomes an indispensable reference work when it comes to determining and evaluating marksmen and marksman medals in Switzerland. Now in the 3rd edition as a German-Chinese version!

Hi Rod,

Wow, I had no idea this was in the works.  I just ordered my copy of the catalog.  I also hope this increases the popularity of collecting these medals and allows more people to see the  beauty and artwork involved in the making of these shooting medals.

I think you are going to very happy that you made the purchase. While there are some additions and corrections the best way to describe this edition is that it is an "Enhanced Edition". Certainly, the Chinese translation will be a great asset to the Chinese speaking collector but for the German and English speaking collectors who already own the 2nd edition, I think this is well worth the cost of admission!
