    I have to agree.....Sorry - these were never issued during the TR....they were made up afterwards and are fantasy pieces. The bottom one looks a little like the medal awarded for service in the SS.....Top one doesn't look like anything I've seen before.

    Guys......

    thanks very much for you answers, my grandfather was in WW2 from beginning and he left behind him a box with 10 different german badges so I cant be 100 % sure but 99 % I am sure he couldnt took anything after the war because in our country ( yugoslavia now serbia ) it was forbiden to have anything connecting with germany and if I can remember when he talk about war he took all that from german prisoners......so the first one which I couldnt find anywhere on net what it means, is from the WW2.......

    The second one is SS long service cross - if it would be original, it's worth lots of money. But from what I see, it's probably a copy. More detailed pics from different sides &angles would be necessary. The first one is probably a fantasy piece.

    One thing I learned early on in this hobby is that you have to go with the item....not the story behind it. These pieces are not from ww2....sorry....
