    Default Help Needed/ Watch Fob? /Sports award?

    Hello, Here is a couple pics of some items given to me by my father back in the 1960's. It is a mix of WWI & II German items. The mauser bullets are 1917-18 dated. I have had all 40+ years, and do not know what the eagle badge? watch fob? device is. Maybe it was part of another medal or badge. I do not know about the paper award either. Seems it is a 1000m meter running award? That is a long run! I have problems going around the block : ) All items were found in a cigar box in Denver, Colorado approx 1965. It was in the basement of a Large old Victorian house, that my father and uncle bought to make into a Youth's home. Any help from the experts in this field would be appreciated. Regards

    They are all good original items.

    The WW1 items are the 7.92mm rounds, the 1914 issue Iron Crosses 2nd Class and the patriotic watch fob.

    The breast eagle is an Army Officers quality version.

    You are correct on the NSRL sports award document. 1st place in the "Ten Canadians" 1000 metres. I have never heard of that type of race before!

    Thanks for showing them.

    Cheers, Ade.

    hi kilroy , as ade said they look real nice items , and from what i can make out the sports award seems to be not for running , but for canoeing and it seems that it was for 1st place with a team of ten men paddling in canadian style . the paperwork looks in fantastic condition as well

    cheers al

    Hi Gary, no I don't think so. Drum hangers are much more substanstial going by the ones I have seen. I am 100% certain it is a watch fob.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I agree with Ade on this one, It is a watch fob, I have one with the same type of catch. Picture below

    Hello John, thank you. Your fob looks to have a similar clasp. They appear to be WWI era. Is this correct. stupid question, but not up on WWI too much, and no one has mentioned which world war.
    Regards, Steve
