    The obverse photo of the 1st pattern was taken with a different camera to show the fantastic detail on these Orders. Anyways I hope you enjoy the photos!

    Hi Erich, they are both beautiful examples.

    For the uninitiated and more novice members of the forum, what is the difference between a 1st and 2nd pattern?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Adrian for your kind words. The 1st patterns were given to the original Putsch Veterans and were awarded in 1934. The total 1st patterns awarded was aprox. 1500. My example is number 626 awarded to Franz Fuchs who was a member of the SA Munchen.
    The 2nd patterns were awarded from 1938-42. The 2nd pattern was awarded to those who were jailed, wounded or lost their lives during the "time of struggle" and many Austrians received the 2nd pattern award. The total BO's awarded is about 4200.

    Thumbs up Re: Eye Candy

    Hi Erich


    Although I don't collect political awards they both look very desirable. Do you have an idea of how many first patterns survived the last 60 years?

    Hi Nick, not many most were destroyed by the recipients wanting to make their case as to not being a Nazi. First and second patterns are both pretty rare IMO. No numbers have surfaced as to how many are still out there though.

    Yes that's correct Phil, there's a die flaw on all original 1st pattern BO's that may have been carried on in the very early 2nd pattern Orders. Here's a little display I put together and posted on an earlier thread of pieces relating to the Putsch. The period statue is a desk size copy of the Mahnmal at the Feldherrnhalle with the names of the 16 who died during the Putsch.
