    As an archaeologist I have a problem with the very flat multicoloured patina and especially with the very light green brown areas. Just be careful!

    Thanks for this but it is infact a C as i have just checked , i'll clean these up slightly for better viewing , Here are pictures of the Albeitbuch from the same seller who had a lot of daggers aswell and all his stuff looked genuine , i really find this so hard to beleive. But appreciate your knowledge.

    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling

    What a gutter , i am cleaning the pair with brasso now as we speak the close combat badge looks like a bronze colour is that correct?. I have also taken a picture of the arbeitsbuch which is awaiting moderation , appreciate the help guys but am still finding it hard to take in.

    I totally agree with Ned...Especially the use of FEE instead of FEC is unforgiveable.

    Ned's opinion of these is one to be taken seriously. There are three or four members here whose knowledge of these clasps make them THE guys to go to and Ned is one of them.

    Post the Arbeitsbuch in the paperwork forum for the guys to take a look at.
    Best Regards,

    Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....

    Just gutted guys , the stamp on the pin is L/12 , i'm still cleaning the badge , i'll post on here when both are cleaned up but obviously you guys know what you are talking about. I might make a display piece out of them with the arbeitbuch book underneath them , what i was suprised about was how heavy they were. And i thought i had the real deal. . Thank you for all the help.

    My work here is done. I'm needed elsewhere now. I'm needed wherever outlaws rule the west. Wherever innocent women and children are afraid to walk the streets. Wherever a man cannot live in simple dignity, and wherever a people cry out for justice.
