Hello Mike,

I could be completely wrong here, but I am not really liking this case. It seems fairly well made but still lacking in overall quality, IMO. I am not familiar with LdO type cases for Social Welfare Decorations either, although they probably do exist. Is that a ball-point pen written number '3' that I see? The look of the dried glue does not seem right to me either. I would also expect to see a more symmetrical recess for the decoration and one that is more centered. Hopefully, you will get some opinions from those more knowledgeable on this type of case.

Best regards,
Tom

aren't the LDO cases associated with 1957 era Red Cross decorations?

Default agree

I must also agree .
I have never found an original red cross or social welfare in an ldo case .
although there is still the on going thing of trying to prove that not only Godet produced them (nightmare).There are others just like rocking horse poo though.Never cased .
I have only to date found Godet produced pieces in Godet cases .Not at all sure if LDO may have produced some cases in the period but this one for me is a later one I agree with all the others comments.
Best regards Pete

Default ok

yes ime happy with that some are not .
the main thing they are not happy with is the pin and catch.
the hinge for me is pretty dam it .
But the pin and catch are not what you would expect on a L15 otto Schinkle
on all the other l15 awards War merit ,EK1 ,Spanish cross of all 3 types you do not see a round catch .Only square types.
Regards Pete
