  1. 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.
  2. 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

  5. Thank you for sharing these Rod. That 1890 Frauenfeld gold medal is spectacular. That must be a one of a kind piece. I really like the 1862 Lugano medal as well.
  6. Yes, very happy to get the 1914 Luzern, especially in that condition. I assume it's true for you as well, but it's very, very rare (and lucky) when I am able to find anything in such nice condition. I also really like most Ticino pieces. I think Ticino has some of the most beautiful shooting medals, but so hard to come by. I'd love it if you could share anything you have. Especially if it is some of the older medals, which I never get to see except in Richter's book.

  12. 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
  13. Here is my 1836 Davos. Unlike Rod, I only have this one, but I think it's a beauty. PCGS SP65.
  14. Just got my copy of Richter's new Swiss Talers and Shooting Medals book and it is fantastic. I knew it was going to be bigger with expanded listings, but it really is quite a bit bigger. It's really impressive. I'm loving just flipping through it to see the newly listed medals. Happy medal hunting everyone.
  15. Rod, Thank you for the update. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this book.
  16. I am happy to hear this news. I've been anxiously awaiting this book for quite a while. If it is released at 85 euros, that seems like a very reasonable price to me. I'm going to have to get two. I wonder how much interest this will generate regarding these beautiful medals. Thank you for the update.
  17. Thank you for the prompt response. I'm absolutely interested. I'll being awaiting any updates you have.
  18. Hi Rod and all, I'm new to the thread, but have been collecting Swiss shooting medals for several years now. I'm anxiously awaiting the release of Richter's revised edition. Rod, do you know where or how I might be able to purchase one (or two) of these books once it is released? Rod, I love being able to see some of your collection. It's terrific. Thank you for sharing. 49ermatt
