GERMANY – TABLE MEDAL – EAST WEST TRANSATLANTIC FLIGHT 1928 – HALLMARKED – SILVER .900
This is an ultra high quality table medal that commemorates the East to West Trans Atlantic Passage. This flight was made by pilots von Hünefeld and Hermann Köhl, who was a WW I PLM-winner. The flight took place on 13 April 1928. It was actually more difficult than Charles Lindbergh’s West-to-East trip, which, even today, is assisted by favorable tail winds.
The reverse of the table medal shows the plane that was used. It also announces that the takeoff point was Bremen.
The table medal is manufacturer hallmarked and silver hallmarked for .900 silver on the edge.
