Isn't there also an "AFRIKA" device for post-war ribbon bars?

I've never seen a real die from WWII. I wouldn't know what to look for. Why, would anyone want one, perhaps to make some more? Makes one wonder, huh?

Wouldnt the die have to be a female impression? How would these male dies work? I have never seen hollowback pins.

I am obviously missing something here...someone learn me.

Default Interesting.

I agree that a die would normally appear in the opposite. Unless the impressions from these dies would later be hollow backed.
