Olympia-Ehrenzeichen 1st Class

Recommended Posts

Another item up for review. So far I dont think its correct but its hard to find image of genuine 1st class awards. 

 

1, The eagles claws are not very noticable as seen on 2nd class awards, here they seem more like part of the wreath.

2, Swaz is also not so defined and looks a bit small.

3, The ribbon loop resembles the 1957 award loop

4. Rivets dont match, they are punched unlike the others I have seen, I have seen one -57 award with the same rivets.

 

Info that checks out

1. Number of feathers on wings is five oposed to 4 on 2nd class awards

2. Number of lines(logs) is 10 under wreath, instead of eight as of a 2nd class award.

 

 

So is anyone here specialized in these and would like to help me out?

 

Any pictures of originals would be greatly appreciated!

 

I cant find any discussion threads on these so if there is any please post them here or drop me a PM.

 

Thanks

Bjorn
