Hello

Thanks Mike. :beer:

Hello Mike,

I agree, outstanding! Have you ever dealt with a firm called "Elitemilitaria"? They sell 57 items on E-Bay from time to time and have a real fancy add which in part reads"

"This WW2 1957 GERMAN BLACK 3rd CLASS WOUND BADGE is guaranteed to be 100% authentic (genuine), and will come with a letter of authenticity from the German manufacturer Steinhauer & Lueck Luedenscheid, Germany."

I am new to collecting the 57 items and understand there are really 3 types of 57 items out there.

1. 1960's produceditems which show their age and are called "early" items.

2. Items produced after 1977 which are still considered 57 items but obviously not as popular as the 1960's items.

3. New made junk. Cast items, etc which have little to no real value to collectors of 57 items.

Have I missed anything?

Thank you for a quick lesson!

My best,

Vince
