    Default Ratisbon's Auction Exotica

    Okay guys I have poked around the site to see the general sentiment of Ratisbons Auction - it is also one of our add and I assume a sponsor. Prices are what they are but I am not getting a good vibe on some ites. When I got to this one I decided to stop looking. wow...wow am I right that there is a problem with this item? I would hate site members getting brutalized by a sponsor I am not talking on price just authenticity. Maybe im being 2 protective. but in its the description they don't even know what type of medal its made out of ! If im wrong on this im wrong it just seems crazy
    Thanks

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    Looking at the size of it, more like "Holy Egg Cup"........

    That's exactly what it looks like!!!

    I noticed you must log in to view the images on their website...kind of goes against the norm of other websites.

    Here's their guarantee...pulled from their Terms & Conditions section:

    Guarantee: All items are guaranteed to be original manufacture before May 1945, unless otherwise stated. All customers both inland Germany and worldwide have 14 days to return the item or items for a full refund, if the item does not reach the expectation of the customer. Please see our section "Right of revocation" for more information.

    Guarantee or not, there have been fake combat awards on their site before, I've seen several PAB's that are bogus. I also suspect that some have been chemically cleaned, they are just too bright, and I use the word "suspect" conservatively.

    I think GeneralPutnam has a good point. Thanks for calling this item out. It does look hokey to say the least. Never saw this one in the reference books.

    When you sign up not only do you get full access to no blurred pics but they also give you a 10 euro welcome bonus. I almost jumped out of my skin! what a great perk! I signed up last night and guess what I still cant see a ten euro credit, to be honest I am not going to look for it long im just going to count as a formal strike one. I didn't really look at the site last night but now when I have time to formally look through as soon as I saw the body of Christ knights Templar fountain of youth- as you guys said "egg" cup I logged out

    The NSDAP standard pole top eagle finial and Deutschland Erwache standard are interesting items, although with bids starting at 17,000 and 15,000 euro's a piece, I think I'll save my money for a new roof on the carriage stables.

    Some very common items sell for very high prices on the auctions, and that's before the 12.5% mark up fee. I've Never really seen any bargains to be had on there.

    I actually have a few bids on the site.... Pricey... But some of the pieces are hard to find other places
    or at all, in my case.. I have placed a "Max" bid on the few things I am interested in... If someone wants it more than me... So be it..
    I'd rather be A "RaD Man than a Mad Man "

    don't get me wrong guys, there is some decent stuff on there. For newer collectors and below average collectors like me skill wise. to many mines for my personal risk appetite. I am not really focus on prices just seeing how my skill are on telling good from bad
