Bi-metallic 1883 400th Ann. Birth Of Reformist Dr. Martin Luther Wartburg Medal:
Here is avery nice old commemorative medal made of a possibly gilt brass round central portion, enclosed in an octagonal white metal encasement, both sections in quite splendid condition overall, the unit measuring app. 1 & 8" across, with a loop at the top and a brass link attached. This attractive religious piece shows hardly any wear, with some tiny imperfections barely noticed, and I have not cleaned it in any manner, four of the photographs having been enhanced for clarity.
The obverse pictures the German Protestant leader facing a shade left, and around the top is "Zum 400 Jahr. Jubilaum 1883", with "Dr. M. Luther 1483 - 1546" at the bottom.
The center of the reverse depicts the famous church at "Wartburg", with "A. Schwerdt Stuttg." beneath, and around is "Eine Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott". Gorgeous!
