    Mine would have to be, on a "technicality" because I was given them at the same time, my late grandfathers ID tags, cap badge and "medical grade card"

    Very well put Glenn, it's interesting to think of what that badge saw, and you're right, it's a great symbol of the rise and fall of the fortunes of the Third Reich.

    A simple party badge, yet one that was found in Stalingrad and is significant to me in that it epitomizes the inglorious failure of the National Socialist cause at what many would consider to be its high tide mark.

    The myriad of fissures and patina post silent comment on the fate of a once proud owner and his ultimate doom in pursuit of furthering a faulty cause.
