Identification help needed (3 medals)

Recommended Posts

I am a militaria collector and these three medals were included in a box lot of military items that I had purchased. I know nothing about these types of art medals and am seeking some assistance with identification, rarity, and value on each of the three medals I have pictured here. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

- the first medal appears to be of German chemist Georg Lunge, artist: Hans Frei


- the second medal appears to be a WWI battle scene, artist: Marcel Prosper Lordonnois


- the third medal is a scene of some sort of castle with the caption "Le Mont St. Hichel" ; artist: unknown

LINK More info here, plus auction price. If you look on the edge of the medal it should have inscribed F.D. BROWN Inc. N.J.
