    And who made the KVK without swords ?
    This is not my area of expertise, so I come to you for help.
    Thanks.

    Hello and thanks for posting.
    All the awards you've posted are originals, no problems with any of them.
    The KVK with swords is a tombak example in excellent condition, whether or not it is a Bengel is impossible to tell as KVKs are difficult to pin to a maker unless they're marked. The KVK without swords looks like a zinc made piece and the number '136' is the mark for J.Wagner & Sohn Berlin.
    The Mutterkreuz is a nice award and this one is again in very good condition with a decent ribbon and again, impossible to put to a maker.

    Still looking for my first KVK. Like yours would be a place to start.

    very nice awards!
    The KVK series are quite easy to collect and actually became my first full(ish) series collection. (no Knights Cross of the War Merit Cross of course)

    I've been thinking about that! I went down that path with the EK collection which came out OK (sure would like to have TR Ritterkreutzes though)

    Thanks for your positive comments.

    And thanks alot Adrian for answering my questions

    The mutterkreutz is my favorite. Beautiful design, interresting history, even though they didn't earn it in battle.

    Like your display Glenn66

    Hi again.

    I've been offered an urkunde for a KVK with swords.
    It's dated 20. April 1943.
    Will that match my KVK with swords ? (the date)

    Thanks
