British Made Lusitania Medal Boxed - WWI Propaganda
The sinking of the Lusitania was considered an acceptable act in Germany and a medal was minted in honor of the incident. The British, of course, considered it very much a war crime. They reproduced the German medal and used it as a propaganda tool emphasizing the civilian loss of life. Indeed. on the reverse of the medal we even see Death working the ticket stand for prospective passengers. Medal is in its original box. The box shows solid wear and is missing one edge. Not a solidly made box in the first place. Really an interesting medal from many different angles of interest.
