This is a photo of my grand-father reading the “Tagespost” – Der Vormarsch gegen Rußland” (Daily Post – Offensive against Russia).
From Jean Weightman:
I have attached two photographs of a medallion I found among my mother’s things. My mother was born in Czernowitz in 1913. Her parents and maternal and paternal grandparents were all Czernowitzers from around the mid 1850s.
The medallion could be Romanian, Austro-Hungarian, German or something else.
It looks like a coin with the tiny photograph fixed to one side and decorated with enamelled Forget-me-nots.
I wonder if anyone from the list is able to identify the gentleman – possibly a monarch – and the coin. I cannot find a date on the medallion. It may have been on the side that was later decorated with the photograph and the flowers.
Thanks and best wishes to all.
