    It is true that many of the 2nd Model Luftwaffe's had gilded swastikas, but unfortunately, most are found today with little or no trace of the gilding left, as it was particularly susceptible to absorption and quickly disappeared. If you do a search here, you will find a few examples to see,though. Post #13 of Danny "Dr73" shows a stunning example of one. 2nd model luftwaffe by Alcoso

    Its a rare sight indeed to find any gilt left on most Luftwaffe pommels due to the application process to make them "stick" better to the Pommel Swaz.

    Can you show us a pic of the Producers give the members here a time frame of Alcoso production?

    The Producer SMF seems to have been the best in Over Achievement in the Gold Gilt Process. I have seen some ratty looking SMFs..and yet still retained most of its Gilt on the Pommel swaz. Your Alcoso example is a special exception and quite rare to have most of it left. The question still remains is there an original untouched example that shows the Gilting done on an Alcoso example?

    Shown in the link provided by Wagriff Dannys Minty example minus the Gilt.
