Rare porcelain 1929 commemorative medal in honor of the LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin, 1.75? in diameter, produced by the Meissen Porzellan Manufacture of Dresden, Saxony. The medal shows the flight of the Graf Zeppelin with the background of the Western hemisphere on the front, and the map showing the Eastern hemisphere on the reverse. The front is encircled with raised text, "Friedrichshafen, Tokio, Los Angeles, Lakehurst," and the reverse in the same manner, "Graf Zeppelin, Welt, Rundflug, 1929." The crossed swords trademark of the Meissen Werke is visible on both sides. In fine condition. Only 100 medals were struck and used for special presentations.
