    Hello all! I've been away for a long time since i serve in the army of my country... Anyway i found this beautiful gorget in an antique store of a friend of mine in Athens! Since he is a close ffiend i can't ask him to take more pictures of the item. He ensures my that it is 100% original so i took the picture of the item from his website... I know the picture is far from enough to tell it's authenticity but please throw take a couple of minutes to tell me what you can about it! He would never sell me a fake item as an original but he may have been fooled without even knowing about it. The price of the item is very good and seems like a very good opportunity!


    Yours,

    It must be obvious, when having had a look at WAF, as mentioned in
    the earlier post, what the gorget with the eagle and 1935 upon the tang is.
    What a poor fake!
    In 1935 there was not a specific Feldgendarmerie gorget for the army and
    not for the German airforce Feldgendarmerie-units!

    This and many hundreds of gorget-photos were shown in my German gorget-book.
