GERMANY – MEDAL – 1912 FLUGSPENDE
The German people were always being called-on to participate in various “Spenden.” Spenden were donations to various causes both before and during WW I. This is a 1912 Flugspende Medal for the support of German Aviation in 1912.
The medal is silver-toned. The obverse shows an eagle in flight. The reverse says “National Flugspende.” The medal is attached to what was normally the top half of a veteran’s association medal, which is also silver-toned. It consists of a Hohenzollern Crown with crossed swords over oak leaves. In turn, it is attached to a silk ribbon in Germany’s national colors. The attachment’s reverse displays its German manufacturer’s name. It is an interesting display of the 1912 Flugspende Medal.
