my intention here is for a bit of fun discussion on LACK of quality, on things you might expect better. for ( original WW2 ) items, or atleast thought to be original.
i would like to see members post odd ball items that they own, or have just found pictures of. just to show how the quality we usually expect of things, may not always be the case.
this is not ment to be a value appraisel or if you would want to own it or not. just a realistic look at the lack of quality in some original things.
please post pic's or link's'
i'll start it off with the SS prof. badge. a beautyfull looking badge from the front, a rare item, but look at how the runes attach to the back. not knowing, i have passed on a couple of these over the years, only based on how the back looks. not even close to the quality i expected. but now after some research, it seems it is correct. but seeing bent over pins, instead of rivits ? kind of makes you want to put it down and walk away.
next will be an Assman RO/AG that will give you nightmares.
have fun with this thread.
