Product Information
Specification
Imperial Germany: "The Iron Hindenburg" 
Patriotic Commemorative Medal.
On the obverse: The "Iron Hindenburg" Statue, 
dated 1915.
On the reverse: "Dem Eisenrnes Hindenburg - 
Das Deutsche Volk" (To the Iron Hindenburg - 
The German People)
The medal was introduced in 1915, to reward 
those who contributed in "The Iron 
Hindenburg" war relief fundraising campaign. 
Centerpiece of the campaign was the huge 
wooden statue of Field-Marshal Paul von 
Hindenburg, erected in Berlin. 
The public was invited to pay for a nail to 
hammer into the statue (100DM for a golden, 
5DM for a silvered and 1DM for an iron nail). 
The goal was to fully cover the statue in nails.
The medal, measures 18mm in diameter, and 
was manufactured in iron, zinc or aluminum, 
by "Münz-Präge Anstalt Ludwig Christian 
Lauer" firm of Nuremberg.
This is the rarest type of the medal in iron.
