    Hi Folks,

    Posting this lot for Josh. I fear the colored HJ pin is fake... I don't think Otto Hoffman ever made HJ pins, AND Cone makes no reference to pins other than the standard red in his book.

    Gday Joe,
    I believe the War Merit Medal looks OK from your image of the obverse side.
    Cheers

    The H.J. pin is not a good, you are correct. Otto Hoffman did make some HJ triangles, I've seen a period add, but not metal insignia. The odd colored HJ metal pins are fantasy items.

    A HJ pin was never made other than the national colors period... And War Merit Medal looks OK too me also.
    I do not like dished pins or the coffin style pin plate on items
    Even though these pics provided do not have such plate
