LW Feldgendarmerie gorget
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!

from that pic it stands a good chance.
More pictures taken!
I managed to take more pictures of the item! I'm getting a good vibe from this one! It even glows in the dark!
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!

Yes poor fake, look at the head of this eagle.
Tell and us the site Mike
