This medal is a 1914 German Sanitatshunde Table Medal. The word, Sanitatshunde, translates literally to "Sanitary Dog", but can also mean "Medic Dog." The British refer to them as "Mercy Dogs." The large-scale use of dogs in war times was implemented in WWI. This medal was made by the famous German Medallic Artist, Goetz, who produced prolific amounts of medals from pre-WWI through early WWII. This medal, in any format, is rare; though in "Feinsliber," a chemically pure, 1000/1000 silver material, a medal like this is particularly rare. There is a really nice maker mark on the edge that reads "BAYER. HAUPTMUNZAMPT. FIENSILBER."
Approximately 1-1/2" in diameter
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Feinsilber, or 1000/1000 silver
Obverse: "IM. DIENSTE. DES. WELTKRIEGES. 1914 Reverse": ERST MALIGE VERWEN DUNG DER SANITATS HUNDE
This is from a German Table Medal collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay06/18/22 VHEX08 LHGEX01/17 SGGEX03/24/23
