57er Frackkettchen with 100 PAB & DKiG ............
Gentlemen, bought from a fellow collector on another forum before I went on vacation, and waiting for me upon my return....this wonderful 57er Frackkettchen...or mini chain, a DKiG holder it contains the following awards, DKiG, EK I, EK II, Silver wound badge, PAB for 100 engagements, GAB, and Ost medal.
For some reason, probably during construction the EK II has been attached rear first ! Notice both the 100 PAB and the Silver wound bage has the "O" mark on the rear, and notice to the two piece construction of the 100 PAB.....the details on the awards are stunning and crisp, probably a St u L made pieces.
Sadly it has no provenance, its owners identification lost in time !
Prost ! Steve.
