    Gday All,.
    Here's a new addition to my TR collection.

    As these were also awarded to Germans serving with Eastern peoples I feel they are a little under rated.
    Thanks for looking
    All the best

    Have always liked these "ostvolk" awards. And i need to include one like this into my humble collection some day.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    A nice marked example! I think W&L had the monopoly on these awards

    Thanks gents
    I think "100" is the only marked manufacturer of this award.There are also two unknown unmarked makers,one is the flat reverse variant the other the unmarked dished reverse.
    Considering the sworded awards were combat/bravery related and also issued to Wehrmacht personel of German ethnic origins one would think they would be more popular with collectors.

    All the best fella's

    Very foolishly I sold all of mine back in the 1980's. I had most variants of these and one cased.

    These are great and underated awards. As they were mostly awarded to eastern volunteers I am suprised that so many survived.

    They sound like they were a very nice group of awards Ade.
    I guess if we had the gift of hindsight we would all still be holding on to many things collected in years gone by that we now have regrets over passing on.
    I know I would be in this category .
    Have a good one mate

    Good piece, thank you for showing. Note the curved makers mark which is the same as their EK2 stamp they applied to ribbon rings, hence the curved shape.
