To be truthful, I have doubts on the entire lot. I would pass on it...The HJ leaders badge would be valuable, but it has the "kiss of death" coffin pin on the back. The large pin and the KAK both have crooked swastikas and the rest look like fantasy pieces. The WWI Marines cross may Possibly be a veterans organization tinny, but not worth loads-even if it Was real, which I seriously doubt.

Thanks William. I thought that looked like a coffin pin but wasn't 100% sure, and the quality of the pieces compared to originals was poor. He says he has an SS helmet in storage, so we will see what abomination that turns out to be.
The "SS dagger" pin is a Polish copy of a 1970's British made fantasy design. It made me smile.

I agree it looks a bad bunch! Can you post close up shots of the Kreissieger?

in my opinion, no Kreissieger badge after 1939
this one is dated 194?, so fake, I suppose
yip HJ badges are fake for sure.
Not holding out much hope on the SS helmet & blanket 'family heirlooms' then????
A fake of a fantasy item. Unbelievable!!
