    Default Can someone tell me if this is Kreigsmarine?

    Howdy! I need some help and found your forum. I have been a collector for about ten years and in business for myself for going on a year. I picked up these patches at a flea market last week and was told they were from WW2. I suspect German Kreigsmarine but I am not sure. I know one is Gebirgsjaeger. I wanted to see if someone has knowledge, expertise and could identify these patches and tell me if they are authentic and if so what value?

    Any help you can provide me will be greatly appreciated!

    Warm regards,

    Rich Maier

    I suspect Kriegsmarine for the first but the laughing swordfish normally faces left!?
    I like the Medic patch but all mine have a red tongue.... maybe not an issue.

    Hi Rich, welcome to the forum!

    Sorry, but I think they are nearly all bad. But I am not sure what the winged emblem is for?

    The top one is for the KM small battle units: a rare badge.

    The Gebirgsjager is badly done and is out of alinement.

    All have the same look about them and were most likely made in the Indian sub-continent.

    Cheers, Ade.
