Scarce Antique Zeppelin 1908 Fundraising Commemorative Medal, given to those who provided financial support to enable Zeppelin to continue after the 1908 disaster involving LZ-4. In response to the crash, rather than lose faith in Count Zeppelin’s work, the German public rallied behind Zeppelin’s efforts; in what became known as the “Miracle at Echterdingen,” Germans contributed 6 million marks for the construction of a new airship and gave new life to the zeppelin enterprise. $30 on eBay
