    There is a real mish-mash of items there. Some look to be fantasy imo.

    Can you post some close ups?

    The Deutschland Erwacht is certainly bad. Top right is a fantasy design.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes.

    A Fantasy design is just a modern invention which never existed historically. Made up just to make money.

    Yes, to me most look bad even from these pics.

    The cap eagle is bad and the badge top left of it is also bad.

    The only one which looks any good so far without seeing more pics is the very common Mai 1934 tinnie.

    I would forget them.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Westwall medal is a cast fake: poor detail and pock marks to the finish.

    As I said before Japanese / German friendship badge is a fantasy design.

    Deutschland Erwacht is a known fake, bad marking and pin assembly.

    As I said before, the cap eagle is a badly cast fake.

    Tag der Arbeit 1934 is good. The Saar tinnie is good. So you have two very common badges here which are original.

    The Tirolean & WHW shooting awards you need to reasearch yourself. Not really my thing. But I think some stand a chance of being OK. I know Carl Poellath, Schrobenhausen was a maker of these.

    Cheers, Ade.
