    Go for an early 1957 PLM by Steinhauer ....................... the last 100% original government-sanctioned Blue Max, which was worn by several WW1 veterans ............. including Ernst Juenger.

    That's what I did. I've one in '800' silver and one in gilt bronze.

    You can still find them for around $500.
    Where can you even find these? If I knew where I would buy one today

    I had the opportunity to purchase a damaged private purchase copy from the 1940's a few years back but even that was crazy priced.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Here's Juenger in 1994 ................... wearing a 1957 Steinhauer PLM (with 50th anniversary Crown presented by the PLM vets' association).

    They are still out there ................. if you have patience and keep looking.

    This cased one sold on another forum yesterday ...................... for $550.

    It's very complete, with ribbon hook and proper S&L case, so the buyer got a bargain.

    By the way, mods, .................. apologies for going off-topic here.

    I'm just helping a fellow PLM enthusiast !!

    Air ace Josef Jacobs also wore an official 1957 S&L PLM in his later years.

    He's seen here in 1976. The two PLMs are from his estate.

    The 50th anniversary Blue Max on the left (with Crown) dates from 1967. It was totally unofficial, based on a wartime Godet, and was presented to Jacobs by Theo Osterkamp, head of the PLM vets' association.
