    Are these particular '57 awards being faked as well now? I find that suprising if true.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I think anything remotely related to the TR is being faked :-)
    Any way to date them ?

    Thanks. I did compare them to examples posted on WAF 57 forum and imo they are original.
    Any additional feedback is appreciated.

    IMO two perfectly good 57er Narviks !
    These are like the two I have in my shield collection..........there are from two different time periods, but there is much discussion on when....some say four prongs earlier, some the three pronged versions are earlier...........I like them what ever the period !
    Prost ! Steve.
