    Default 57er 1936 Olympia 1st Class award.................

    Gents, this rather nice neck award has come my way....been looking for one for some years now, rarely seen....1st Class 1936 Olympia award, gilded and enamelled St u L made piece, early version being two piece....a little of the enamel missing on a couple of rings, but I can live with that, quite a stunning piece.
    Here's a link to another forums outstanding thread on recipients of this award, compiled by a fellow 57er collector, Pierce
    Recipient's List: Deutsche Olympia-Ehrenzeichen 1. Klasse - General Research to Central & Axis Powers - Historical War Militaria Forum
    I show a table with all the 57er versions of this award.
    Prost ! Steve.
