Have been having a sort out and forgot I had this little lot. I know some are post war and others are copies but wondered which are genuine. I think the buckles, pith badges, tinnies and wound badges are genuine. Any input would be of help. Thanks Steve. I would like to know what the metal piece is with the eagle stamp in it. The metal itself is very hard, you can not bend it by hand. I have been told that it looks like a mould foe the cap eagles. I have tried a cap eagle in the form and it does fit, so not sure, any thoughts.
You did well...nice catch for a very nice price...

Sorry about that, but at least you're forewarned.

Hi and thanks Ned. Still new to the forum compared to most of you. Will try and sort them out and post to proper forums.
P.S. Still leaning.
to many items to comment on.
Two of the buckles are fantasy items, the EK II spange I believe is a fake, as are the two Nahkampfspange. I believe the Heer Flak and Erdkampfzeichen are also reproductions as are the Spanish cross and German Cross in gold. I believe the edelweiss is real.
Ned is correct, please post in the correct forums with better photos of individual items.
