Silver-gilded decorations after the war?

Recommended Posts

As we all know the prussian orders in the late years of the first world war were made out of gilded silver, instead of gold to save material and money. Looking through some old auction catalogs i read it wasn't planned to reintroduce decorations made of gold after the war - is that true? If true, does it only mean there shouldn't be replacement pieces for the silver-gilded ones or that also all new ones should only be made out of gilded silver?

The austrian silver-gilded decorations were often marked with an asterisk and I think I read somewhere it was planned that they could be replaced with a gold one after the war (I neither know for sure that this is correct, I only remember I have heard it somewhere)
