57 Version Of The 1st Class Olympic Neck Cross


Recommended Posts

Hello

I have just recieved this 57 version of the Olympic Neck Cross. It has, at some point, suffered a small bit of enamel damage on the right side arm, which has been repaired. I believe this is the first class version of this award.

As usual, any comments or observations welcomed.

Hi David,

You actually beat me out on this one and the Luftschutz. :P Oh well... there'll be more. :D Very nice pieces! :love: Here's my Olympic 1st for comparison:

Great pieces and definitely ones you don't see very often. :beer:

Dan :cheers:

Hello Dan

That's a really nice one that you have :beer: Looks identical to mine, your's being in better condition though. :love: These are the only two of these that I have ever seen - well, the 57 versions anyway. If you ever decide to part with yours let me know first.

And post your Luftschutz as well !!

Hi David,

Many thanks! :beer: And yes, I'll definitely let you know if I ever decide to sell, but doubt I will as it goes well with my other Olympic goodies including my 1936 torch holder:

Sadly, I don't have a 1957 Luftschutz. But will continue to keep my eyes open. :beer:
