    I don't have a problem with the IAB, a good 3.01 JFS by the looks. Not the hardest maker to find and these can still be found quite often in mont condition but this one has an interesting patina that makes it a good buy as part of a package of EU140 for the lot.

    Thank you guys for the replies,
    I'm looking at the medal right know,
    I've looked at some pictures of suposed originals, can't find any difference, if it's fake than it is a realy good one.
    The ribon looks a bit off on the green color so that might be a bad sign.
    As soon as the battery of the camera is loaded I'll make some pictures.
    I've found one matching JFS Sturmabzeichen on the net been sold for $298 and the Africa campaign medal for $113.
    I know that some sites are realy asking a lot for these medals, so even if these are seriously overprised I realy didn't do a bad deal at all, the seller looked like a stand-up guy.
    Since I've began collecting I've met a lot of older collectors and they help me on my way.
    I've seen privat collections of WW II and I that made me drool, cry and laugh at same time from disbelief.
    Their collections could rival with a public museum any time.

    Thanks Stewy,
    I'm still wondering about the Africa campaign medal, a few members said it might be a cast fake.
    I've checked weight and size refs, did the blacklight test on the ribbon, everything points to original.
    If you guys can recomend me a good ref. book or site on German decorations and badges, that would be great.(dissregard last transmission, just found a thread with some good refs)

    Thanks and regards,
