    Default Two Gorgets for review good/bad/ugly

    Hi all.
    I meet a old collector today who had a collection of armbands and gorgets that he wanted to sell.
    He brought these from another collector in new zealand in 1985 or 86.
    I know that these are rare gorgets and looking at other info im getting the feeling that they are czech fakes?
    The back tangs on both are marked D.R.G.M.
    I,m not sure if the chain is magnetic but I can find out more tomorrow and I,ll try to post better pics.
    Any thoughts on these 2 would be appreciated.
    Rgds Peter.

    Thanks for help.
    The owner will be gutted over this.
    When I seen the DRGM mark I wasnt feeling the love at all.

    Bad and ugly... Just look how crude and misshapen the eagles and lettering are. A far cry from the originals!

    Saw them a few months ago offered at a Dutch militaria show for 35,- euro or about.
    All what can be wrong with eagles and letterings is wrong. Especially the letters are
    laughable!!

ID:	526675Wow, this is a ugly one. When comparing to a known original it is quite obvious the OP is a copy. Here is a original.
