    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I think the medal is ok but I have doubts about the ribbon.

    Hello there,

    Medal and ribbon are fine IMO. Is the ring stamped "100" by chance? The allies found stockpiles of these in unissued condition at the end of the war. Most of the time these crude zink medals lose their finish but this one has retained a lot of it.

    Gunny, have a look at post #24 here..... http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/orders...silber-244487/ it could well be a 57er......
    Prost ! Steve.

    I am wondering how/if these would have been produced under the 57 regs. As I understand it and please correct me if im wrong. The 57 regulations were brought in to allow the wearing of medals/badges issued during the Third Reich by veterans and members of the wehrmacht. The 57 awards were based on the original design minus any emblems that could be associated with the Nazi regime. As the Ostvolk awards did not contain such emblems they would have not fallen under the regulations of 1957 and as such any manufactured post 8 May 1945 are either copies or fakes.

    PS the above Ostvolk is in my opinion a good TR period made example which I would be pleased to have in my collection.

    Robin, you are quite right about the 1957 awards.....see this thread, which I assumed everyone interested in these "Ostvolk" medals had read... http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/orders...silber-244487/ I explain in this thread (post # 24).......
    As for the above medal being of TR origin, I have no idea, it is not my area of collecting, it was merely a suggestion/lead in which one could research further into.
    Prost ! Steve.
