Hi Jørn, nice badge. You always have good taste.
The badge is a mid to late war example.
I agree with Adrian, you have very good taste and seem to only buy the best. Of all I have seen there is very little room to ever up-grade. You have a spectacular collection and the close ups are helping me see what details to look for on good originals. Thank you for letting us share in your collection and that you for helping me learn.
I especially liked the WWI German helmet
Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
Looking for militaria from 38. Batterie, Heeres Küsten Artillerie Regiment 977, also from 31, 32 and 36. Batterie.
I have yet to be able to go front to finish (not that I believe there will be a finish) of this thread. My eyes always start to spin when I see the variety and quality of your collection.
I say dump the coins and continue. You have an amazing knack for this. You have made a place for a new guy like me to reference what a top quality medal/badge should look like.
I hear you Rudy, as i've also said before it was this collection of Jørn's that inspired me to start my own collection, now 5 months later and a good couple of $'000s later it is coming along nicely!
