This is a strange but interesting piece of Third Reich history - a very light-weight medallion just 1-3/8 inches in diameter. The front or obverse side has the logo of a company called Wintershall in deep relief on the front while the reverse or back side has the inscription MAGNEWIN Deutsches Leichtmetall aus deutschen Kalirosalzen Wintershall in relief and the letters Me 109 engraved in the center.
Frankly, we had no idea what this medallion was until we accidentally came across the Magnewin Wintershall advertisement shown above in the Deutscher Luftwaffen Kalender for 1944. It was then obvious that Wintershall manufactured forgings of light-weight Magnewin metal for the Me109 and other Nazi aircraft of the era.
Very good condition.
