Hmmm... the Nazi one is kinda creepy. I can see selling that family heirloom to the highest bidder.

Hmmm... I, personally, cannot understand *any* of this.

Need money? Use it as collateral. But don't friggin *sell* it. Same thing with Superbowl rings, which crop up occasionally.

*I* would have titled this post "What *were* these people thinking??"

*hmmm* is there a subliminal message in that you put the nazi one under "to glory". No, I'm kidding - I didn't seriously think this to be the case. Funny you found three in one go!

The 1936 one isn't a winners' medal, I think. At least, there are plenty on the medals market...
