Siegespfennig


Recommended Posts

A few days a came across this medal:

 

BR1287_zpswvgnlhr1.jpg

 

As far as I can see it is Bramsen 1287. But Bramsen 1287 is part of the series of Siegespfennig made by Loos in connection with the War of the Sixth Coalition (1812-1814). They should all have the same adverse, namely Bramsen 1225. The adverse of this series look like:

Did Loos make Bramsen 1287 with a different adverse or is this not Bramsen 1287?

 

Maybe a question for constanius??

So Loos must have issued some with a different obverse(see below for the same medal in both versions) , perhaps the original die broke & he made a different version, or he just released a second series.
