    Default 57'er Court mounted EK II

    Gentlemen, this rather salty single court mounted EK II came in the post this morning, with plenty of patina (perhaps from a smokers house) a three piece, magnetic core, a St u L version ? I do like these court mounted medals, be they single or many.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks for the comments Gents....Terry, I tend to buy my 1957 awards from other collectors, and from some selected dealers and also E-Bay, if you go the E-Bay route, post here before buying, as 95% or more is fake, yes they do make fakes of these ! Try the classifieds on most sites for 57er items, search E-Bay Germany.
    I have showed this on a couple of other sites, it is a confirmed St u L made piece, however the consensus is that mounting is probably home made, not uncommon among German awards (I have had several such pieces in my Imperial medal collection), they seem to like saving money !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Wait, i'm just figuring these things out lol. Are these medals re-instituted WWII medals just without the swastika because i notice the 1939 on the front of the cross.
    Sorry for being stupid
