    I agree. With the award itself still easily found at or around $30, or even less and the award documents easily found at not much more (unless you look for specialist units such as SS, Para, U-Boats etc), the KVK is a great "starter" award.

    Prices are beginning to hike a bit for KVK1s and RKs are very hard to find but the humble KVK2 is still cheap. There is still a lot of misinformation around about these awards too, suggesting they were some sort of non-combatant thing. Many of course were awarded for actions on the home front or behind the lines, but many were awarded for front line actions too. In fact the wartime publication "Der Lohn der Tat" which gives examples of the kind of deeds required to win various awards gives specific examples of the KVK2 and KVK1 being awarded for front line actions under enemy fire.
