    Default Question about Gorgets

    Hi Guys,

    I have a political leaders gorget and I'm looking for a chain for it. There is an auction coming up this Saturday near my home and they have what I'm looking for. Unfortunately they are lumping it in with some other stuff that I don't know much about. I was wondering if someone could take a look at the photos and tell me what the cloth item and the leather case are and if they are any good?

    Also I'm wondering if the chain RZM number and gorget RZM number should match? Ideally I would like it to but I have read on another form that they didn't always match.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi Kirby, the leather ammo pouch is post war Austrian for the FAL/Stg58 worth about $5.

    The Kreigsmarine eagle looks OK, no idea why it is on the scarf?

    I cannot pass any opinion on the chain, not my area.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The chains do not need to match.

    The chain is a good one. I must disagree with my colleague as the gorget and chain wee manufactured at the same time by the same manufacturer. To be correct, the RZM codes should match. If the price is good, having a mismatched set is better than a gorget less the chain.

    Thanks for the info guys! My preference is to have the two match so like Bob suggested Ill hold off unless its a good price. Not really sure whaat a good price is but Ill figure that out.

    Thanks again!

    Nice Assmann chain.
    Normally the number upon the tang for the shield and the numbers on the link should match.
    But...the chains easily got lost and it is possible then a chain was purchased from another manufacturer by the RZM.
    Also with this they were not so consequent and might have ordered a chain from another manufacturer. They
    purchased it where they could get one quickly. Just my opinion!
