  1. Gentlemen, I would like to show you my "Freikorps" post war (WW2) replacement "Eiserner Roland" award. It's a rather uncommon badge that was produced by St u L in the postwar years as a replacement badge for the 2000 - 3000 initial recipients. It's one of only three Freikorps awards that were officially allowed during the Third Reich. This particular piece was made post 1968 as it rear hardware uses the the open hinge block of this production period, together with the larger "C" catch. The overall quality of this badge is very good with a great detail. St u L made this badge with two finishes, as a satin black painted version has been observed and, as this example, a tarnished steel variant....as a more enlightened member states over on another forum............... "The original issue was oxidized steel and hallmarked by Gustav Adolf Mueller of Bremen. Most of the black lacquered variations probably date from the late 1920s and early '30s. This badge was still in production at the beginning of WW2 and can be seen in the 1939 Steinhauer & Luck sales catalogue. Since it didn't have a swastika, it was produced after the war as well, though most (if not all) of those seem to have been of the "tarnished" steel style". Prost ! Steve.
