Souval RK and OLS both marked L/58

Recommended Posts

I bought this on another forum and cannot discuss it there.  It is a beautiful example of a Souval RK, I'm am guessing quite early as it is so well made.  The OLS, also marked L/58 are also very well made.  The swords are soldered to the oaks and the finish is as good if not better than the S&Ls I own. The cutouts around the leaves are complete and well finished. The obverse of the RK has developed a nice patina, from poor storage I think, and the reverse is as new. It has it's original highly polished flange and what appears to be frosting on the beading.   It looks to have been displayed out in the open in the copy LDO case it came in.  I have some fake ribbon so will need to see if I can find some Souval ribbon for it.  There are no flaws on the beading, the only wear being to the beading in the right hand corner on the 6 o'clock arm.  I'm assuming that the frame is Neusilber as there is no silver (800) mark anywhere.

So, photos.  I apologise for these as I have nowhere in the house to take decent shots.

Although no prior replies I want to add that I certainly like it! Thanks for sharing the time to post this beautiful piece. I sadly don't know much about the 1957 variants (and mostly being an I.D. Collector) but I appreciate it. Thanks, Tony! Hope you are doing fine btw?
