Question. I generally see these medals selling for between $1000-$4000 depending on grade. What is the story on these medals? Who issued them? How do they still exist, I would guess that they all would have been destroyed or melted?
There are numerous Hitler Portrait Medals issued by different makers and readily available to collectors of this stuff . Colbert / Hyder are the authors of the authoritative Work on the subject . The book itself is out of print But can be found with a quick Google search .
The Book itself is extremely difficult to acquire . There was a small print run by Publisher El Cajon in 1981 , two recent sales ( 2019) were $222.00 USD ($290 CAD) Also an auction in Germany €200 Euro ( $288.00 CAD)
