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

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
