  • Drei Verbund

    Hans Lindl - 1914  Cast Bronze, uniface, incuse reverse, satirical medal, 69.0mm, 58.4g

    A French coq, Russian bear, and British bulldog stand wounded and bandaged, the bear licking its wounds and the bulldog still dripping blood.

    Lindl plays a word game here by spelling the term 'Dreiverbund' (alliance of three) with "Drei Verband".  The word "Verband" is ambiguous, as it can also mean "dressing/bandage" or, "The Three Bandaged'
