    Small German Eagle.

    Sonderbefehls:: Nice Eagle, thank you for sharing with the Forum. Best regards, John R.
  6. All: For you review (see attachment) is a 1960 reissued RK by Rudolf Souval, Wien. I will post reverse of cross as soon as possible. This jeweler did not produce RK during WWII, but did afterwards. I purchased this reissued RK from Thomas Huss in September of 2018. This particular cross was made with swastika for veteran.
  7. Nick: Thank you for your comments. I am very happy you like the cross as much as do. It is the closest I am going to come to owning a WWII period Knights Cross. First I will remove the existing loop and ribboni and then start looking for the correct loop and ribbon for Souval Cross. Best regards, John R.

    Post war Souval RK

    Mathias and Steve: Hello! Thank you for sharing your crosses with the Forum. Your crosses are in great condition. I agree, the Souval is the closest I will come to owning a period cross. I just recently posted my 1960 re-issued cross by Souval. Much for me to learn about the crosses made by Souval. Thank you once again for sharing your militaria and being valued members of the Forum. Best regards, John R.

  13. All: I never looked, but the cross is maker marked L/58 on reverse side under loop at 12 o'clock. I took photos, but my laptop is having issues. I will post pictures as soon as possible. Best regards, John R.

    Tips for beginner collector

    Marlow80: Hello! Welcome to HWMF, very good questions. Our fellow Forum members have provided you great direction on sources for purchasing militaria, as well as researching and networking. This Forum has a great thread regarding the care/storage/display of paper, cloth, metal, etc. militaria pieces. Remember "If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is." and "buy the piece not the story." Best regards, John R.
