Norwegian medal ID help needed

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I am new to the forum and I dont know if this is the right place to post my inquiry.

I just got this medal and I know what it depicts, but I am not sure if it is a genuine medal and what it is given for.

It would be great if anyone could help me.

Thanks!

Hi there,

A nice badge you have, but I do not think it is neither a medal / award or of military origin.

It has the same design as Oslo coat of arms, but think it's a hatbadge that has be used by civil service personnel. Will be checking more later.

Regards from Norway

Thank you JoTo for taking interest  and time to provide me with information.

I was aware that it is Oslo coat of arms. I got it as a gift and I didnt know what it was when I got it.

If size can help you find where it was used:

width 6cm

height 5cm

 

Thanks!

Hi,

Finally it fell into place..... It's a visor-badge used by Oslo Fire Brigade about 1955.

Its a good collector-item so take good care of it. There is many collectors on these type of items :thumbup:
