    Ok, not too sure what i'm looking at here. Theres some oddballs in the lot...

    I know the War Merit Cross, and theres the 12 year Wehrmacht Service medal...the others I am not familiar with at all.

    How do they look? Real/fake?

    I was told the War Merit was "dug up", along with the other 2 in poor condition.

    What would each's value be? I am looking at possibly buying these from a guy I know.

    thanks again guys, its greatly appreciated

    12 yr Wehrmacht Service Medal, Same, Army Cap Badge
    War Merit Cross, Westwall Medal, Army Driver's Badge
    War Merit Cross w Swords
    Some badges in the form of British road signs and a train, and , I think, a Nazi party cap eagle (might be wrong on that one)

    Hi Dieter, I dont like the look of that 12 year Long Service medal. The numerals on the reverse dont look right

    The cap eagle is the form worn on civil caps. The political form eagle's head is turned to the left, which is opposite of this one.
