    Stunning RvK RK Nick ! and a bonus in being 800 marked ! with a generous length of original period ribbon (could even be wartime !) These awards are far more rare than an EK RK and more impressive in my book....indeed an early example by St u L, evident by its superb finish and the cut out swords i.e. not touching the frame, not easy to find, congratulations on this addition to your collection..........now like me you have to find "ohne schwerten" and Gold versions now !
    Other collectors here... BEWARE .....there is a flood of reproductions doing the rounds, most are quite good at first glance, if unsure post here !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thanks my friends!

    Yes, it wasn't until I opened the package and took a good look at the edges for any signs of casting marks, when I noticed the silver marking!

    Regards,
    Nick

    Does anyone know if the ribbon could be wartime made?

    Hi Harry,
    Do you mean the small specks on the arms and swords? I think those are caused by either impurities when the finish was applied or a worn die, not at all uncommon...

    Regards

    A bit unfair Harry....these 57ers are often finished as original TR awards would of been...this high end award is heavily frosted giving it an almost a matt white finish and the highlights polished, as these awards were not worn daily the finish never got naturally polished or dulled as often the case with wartime awards, so this medal has not aged to a good patina.......the polished highlights have attracted a small amount of top corrosion giving it that rough look, I think caused by insufficient care when stored, rather than crap manufacture.......Nick it should not be cleaned in my view, despite being silver !
    Prost ! Steve.

    No need to apologize Harry. If you don't like it, then I respect your opinion.
