A 1912 German Imperial Zeppelin Fund Donor's Medal

A 1912 German Imperial Zeppelin Fund Donor's Medal - "National Flugspende" ; Silvered bronze, obverse illustrating a bird in flight over open seas, reverse inscribed "National Flugspende 1912", 27.3 mm, edge nicks, contact marks, very fine.   Footnote: This medal was given to donors, who donated funds to help Count Zeppelin rebuild after the disasterous loss of the LZ4, which was destroyed when it caught fire after landing to carry out engine repairs during a projected 24-hour endurance trial. It was made by Lauer of Nuremberg. Donations by the German public raised 6.5 million marks, guaranteeing the future of his development of airships. In addition, a lottery was started by King Wilhelm II, which helped the Count, as well as some very wealthy other friends, such as Berg, who owned an aluminum factory and supplied the aluminum girders for the new Zeppelin free of charge.
