    nice collection of 57s, by the way did they made all wwii awards as a 57 version, woud like to see an 57 anti partisan or ss/nsdap long service medals
    Thank you for your comments.

    Not all awards were made in the 1957 version. It was basically just the combat awards and certain civilian medals, not political decorations. Organisations such as the SS, SA and the NSDAP were declared criminal at Nuremburg and the awards pertaining to those organisations were consequently banned.
    You will not find '57 versions of SS medals, 'Flower War' medals, Mutterkreuz, Sportabzeichen and such like.

    Thanks Sonny, I have them all in TR - except the RKs.
    I also had them, except the RKs, but I sold both the KVK1. Now I only have the KVK2's.

    Absolutely. The second class awards are wartime quality but the other awards, in spite of them all being early just don't compare to the pre May '45 quality of workmanship.
    why do you think that is adrian because the tr henchmen were not there to ''grumble''

    Quite possibly Ewan. Lack of resources could be a factor too but basically the standards required for these awards were lower than the wartime examples.
