    Hello Rod,

    Glad that you received them and that all is in order! You probably know this already, but I shall say it anyway for the benefit of anybody who might consider it, don't try to clean off the "grey" on any of your awards. It's the patina and is a nice sign of age.

    Well done again for acquiring two super awards in fantastic condition, for a cracking price too.

    Regards

    Carl
    Hi Carl,not all "grey" finish Ost's are grey due to patina. Some like mine are intended to be so. Stewy

    There is plenty of information here regarding the KVKs too. I've posted a pic several times which shows the differences in finishes and materials.

    They are not genuine ww2 artifacts, they are repros
    As Adrian said, please qualify your response with some fact. If these are indeed bad they really have had a lot of us fooled.

    They are showroom condition meaning they were produced not too long ago, they are certainly not 60 years old. just my take my on it, i am allowed to form this opinnion
    Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion and can voice it but it is always easier when you can explain why an opinion has been formed. Condition should not be the deciding factor in determining originality of an item. See below, these awards are in absolute mint condition, I unwrapped them from their original packaging, does this mean they're fake?

    They're unissued original pieces straight from their packets. This is why they look so "new"-they've never really been handled with fingers(which ages badges Considerably!) or exposed to that much air-of course they are going to look like newish. They haven't even had their ribbons threaded on. I see Nothing wrong with either. William

    I like that EK2,btw,Adrian. Nice!

    I agree with Adrian, mint awards can be found very easily! Doesnt mean they are repro!
