    Default 57er Cholm shield....................

    Gentlemen, the rarest of the shields, wether it be a 57er or original wartime example.........only 5,500 Cholm shields ever awarded, as against the following:-
    Narvik......8,577.
    Krim........250,000.
    Kuban.....145,000.
    Demyansk....100,000.
    So as a 57er I would imagine the makers were aware of the above figures so adjusted production to reflect...........in the last five years I have only seen three for sale, two on E-Bay, one on another forum and I bought one of them ! However I know a dealer in Germany with one for sale at the moment, 125 Euro ! its scarcity reflected in its value.
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    My favourite shield, I really like the sharp look of the eagle on these. Another superb acquisition Steve!
