Arnhem 50th Anniversary Commemorative Medal

Flag_of_the_NetherlandsIn 1994 this medal was distributed by the town council of Oosterbeek. Definitely an unofficial medal but you had to show you were a veteran to get one. There’s two types of “tin medals” in my humble opinion. The ones stamped out by the veterans orgs and the towns to commemorate and the ones stamped out by companies to pander to vanity and make a dollar.
