    From the pics provided, all the Third Reich German items appear good. Chances are the ribbon on the Westwall Medal will be modern. The Soviet medals I would pass on. Belgian items are right outside my collecting interests.

    No bargains there...

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks, auctions on monday. by then i would have figured out what i would bid on
    i instanly likes the 40 year faithful service nazi medel. but is 125 euro too dear? if no one likes it, it would probibly go down to 100 euro then its up for grabs

    125 Euro if it is the starting price is getting towards the market value. Remember at auction you will also pay a commision on the final hammer price. Just do a search and you will find others for sale online. It is not a rare medal to find cased.

    Cheers, Ade.

    yes true but hopefully no one will be interestid and it will go down in price . but there is allways someone

    and my dad and I had a long talk about german militaria collecting.
    he doesent agree with it. he went on about my grandad who could of been killed by the germans for building britsh ships. But he said he'd let me if it was from 100% trustworthy sites that dont aprove of racism or the such, and he doesent mind auctions. so im taking advantage from this local auction .

    Don't be in a rush and over spend on relatively common items. A cased gold Mutterkreuz can be found easily between 80 - 90.

    hi , i would pass on all , prices way to high for start bids . as ade pointed out dont forget the sale commission can be 10/20% on auction items , save your cash and shop around .why not have a look in the forum sale section ,better prices
    to be had. ....cheers paul
