    Looks good to me. A 1st type 1.3 pattern by an unknown maker (although Juncker has been mooted but yet proven IIRC), and it appears to possibly be made from cupal, as a copper finish is showing in the worn areas. If so that would be a nice catch!!

    Thanks Ned, good news, just for a change . If I can get a nice deal, I will go for it, have no idea about prices on these ones though, seller has to tell me about the price

    Found it, for those who did n t know like me, CUPAL is a plating of copper on aluminum. The two metals are inseparably welded together in a special process. CUPAL is therefore not an alloy, but a composite material from the group of non-ferrous metals. CUPAL is tested in many ways and proven over many years as a replacement material for pure copper, Tombak and brass

    Hi Ned, sorry to bother you again with this, by looking at the cloth, IMO, it looks kind of blueish, could this be a Luftwaffe award?

    The obverse cloth looks like feldgrau to me. Should be a Heer award.

    Heer Harry, KM would be a gilt one.

    Cheers, Ade.
