Germany: 1923 "Kornjude" style Naked Jew on Corn Bushel medal; struck in bronze; by [Friedrich Wilhelm] Fritz Hörnlein; size: 38mm, weight: 22.15g. Obverse depicts fat Jew, naked, sitting on bushel of corn with the German legend "ob Jud ob Christ ein schuft der wucherer ist" ("Whether Jew, whether Christian, a scoundrel - a userer he is"); in light text at top appears "F.H. 1923" - the initials of the Dresden engraver Fritz Hörnlein (1873-1945).

On reverse, German legend within a double ringed edged, "in Bösen zeiten ist ohn zweifel ein mensch oft des andern teufel" ("in time of evil, without a doubt, a human is often the other devil").

A bitter medal of the postwar inflationary period, taking swipes at both Judaism and Christianity. In UNC, with toning and original luster; Kirschner 30.
