    Default Help needed on first purchases

    I have been looking to start a collection for some time, but have been put off by the proliferation of fakes. These look good, and have fine detail,and they have a story about their finding. However, I am not so confident in my abilities and would like some input as to whether they look like originals - some pics are useless, but you'll get some idea. Any help appreciated.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    The NSKK cap insignia is a good original.

    The cap cocade is also fine.

    The Edleweiss' are original, BUT the one with the curved stem seen on the left, is a post war West German example.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The Edelweiss on the right is WWII period. The Cockade wreath has all the pins intact. If you purchase it - don't bend them - they break easily. You should be able to locate a national Cockade and a Heer Adler to complete the cap insignia.
