    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    Not that I'm aware of. There are just so many awards.

    You also need to remember that even across makers, there were often many variations of each award (dies, metal used, rear hardware). So you could have a common maker but in a very rare configuration.

    In the 15 or so Awards reference books I have (most focusing on just one award type and often hundreds of pages) they will generally only mention in passing if it is common or rare.

    "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

    Not quite what you are looking for, but this site (in German) does a countdown from 71 to 1 of the most valuable German Medals.

    I think it all depended on the type of award.
    Some makers made many awards in one area,Heer,Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine and some less in those areas.
    I collect Hilfskreuzer awards and the rare ones are Meybauer,Mayer and Deumer.
    They are very hard to find,especially the tombak Meybauer and zinc Mayer..To date I have the only zinc Deumer we know of..

    But these makers produced other Kriegsmarine awards in more numbers.

    Just my observation in a particular field of collecting.

    Cheers,Martin.
