    Default Ostvolk 1st Class Gold No Swords Award

    Last of the bundle that arrived.
    This is another 'type 2' made by Wachtler and Lange. Maker marked '100' under the pin
    Note how the gilt Brennlack finish is just about hanging on to the ends of the sunburst rays on the obverse but has all absorbed leaving the gray lacquer finish on the reverse.

    I hope these pictures help folks identify good from bad.

    The only Type I do not have any examples of are the 'Type 1' which is the type that has a plain inner and outer circle rather than the corded type found on the type 2s and 3s

    Thank you for your response Harry
    You should post his user name Harry, so we can all avoid the crook.
    I think a few of us must have had similar experiences.
    I had a couple of sour deals on the German Militaria 321 auction site.

    All the best

    Thumbs up

    I've got all of the Ostvolk medals. The first Kl are cased. I think I have envelopes for most of the ones with ribbons also.

    Hello Sarge,
    lovely grouping and thanks for posting the pictures.
    I see 3 'type 2s' and a 'type 3' in your 1st class awards.
    Some really detailed close ups of your Class 2 awards and their issue envelopes would be appreciated as this is my next avenue of research.

    I have worked out so far that there should be 12 variations of the 1st class award and there should be 18 variations of the 2nd class.

    All the best
    Doug

    Question

    I'll have to look, but I don't think I have close ups of very many if any of them.
    I also have the problem that my camera died a while back and I haven't gotten another one.
