    Just a couple more to add ! a pair of 57er KVK 1st Classes, combatants & non combatants, St u L pieces from the early 1960's...nicely frosted and polished highlights & solid hinge block's ! note, the swords were cut from a combatants to to form a non combatents, only one was die used by St u L !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Although a later piece, IMO still a nice collectable 57er, thanks for showing HPL ! notice though, the decline in quality on the later piece, especially on the reverse !
    Prost ! Steve.

    All of my KvK2's and Kriegsverdienstmedailles are unmarked which I believe is the norm for the majority of these two awards.But I have noticed alot of marked examples on this thread.

    Thanks for looking gents
    Cheers
