    Default A collection of 57er wound badges...................

    Gentlemen, my collection of wound badges, St u L early, mid and late production. Deumer trio and Souval trio, plus something unusual....a total of 16 altogether, I really like these little blighter's ! You can see the different finishes, hardware and designs, especially following the Stu L timeline...I shall add to this thread over the next few days to show all.
    First all the badges together, a group shot so to speak.......
    Prost !Steve.

    Trio of early St u L wound badges........approximately 1957-1960. Sadly the catch on the gold grade needs re- attaching, something I will address in the near future........
    I show the black badges separately as the detail does not show in the trio images.
    Prost !Steve.

    next trio, St u L mid production wound badges, approx 1960-1968, note the change in hardware and die on silver and gold grades.....................although still solid they are now dished with a rim at the rear.
    This was also the last era of the hollow backed black grade badge.
    Prost ! Steve.

    The third and last line of St u L wound badges, late production, approx 1968-1986 ? note all are now solid backed, they are infact the same die strike but with different finishes according to grade, note also the open hinge and second taper pin assembly.........
    Prost ! Steve.

    Finally the last trio, Souval's, probably from the early 1950's to mid/late 1970's ? The black grade has a rough textured finish, see last images....an assortment of hardware on these badges, that changed through out their history from typical wartime type to late St u L style..........These badges are very light in weight and the gold grade is painted rather than anodised and polished like Deumer and St u L versions !
